Warm tips, the stores close usually 1-2 weeks before the scheduled date and will open 1-2 weeks later than the scheduled date. Because all Chinese pay a lot attention to this big annual festival and would leave aside enough time to fully prepare for it. They clean house, buy decorations, treat relatives, visit friends and go travel. A lot of Chinese factory workers get long holidays and so the stores won’t open as scheduled date. They need to wait for the factories. In addition, 28th Feb is Chinese Lantern Festival, a day for family union. The Usually the factories, companies,schools start their new fighting after this.
