The visitor center obviously lacks a lot of seating, which the centers had to remove or block from the government order. There are several seats available in OC Letňany, it was constantly occupied. People stood at the railing in large numbers so that they could at least lean while waiting for the other members of the household with whom they went shopping. They carelessly shuffled and regularly looked for a place to sit. However, a security agency worker came to warn them that this was not possible.
For example, according to its marketing managers Martina Tlusty, Galerie Harfa is not a traditional weekend shopping center, many people today take the opportunity of reopened stores and go shopping. “Attendance is roughly at the same level as in previous days, when it was 60 percent higher than the week before the disintegration, which is within our expectations,” he says.
