LET YOUR FILM DO THE TALKING
Last Day Today
Nelson Liu Yihong
"Denny and Ivy run the largest movie poster business in Southeast Asia. Their retail store in Esplanade, a landmark building in Marina Bay Singapore, has a history of 16 years. In 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 has severely hit the retail industry. However, the online shopping trend that has emerged as a result has provided them with new ideas. Seeing the improvement of online business, they decided not to renew the contract with Esplanade to reduce operating costs in order to survive this difficult period.
What’s waiting for them was the last day of business. Moving away everything they had accumulated for 16 years, and finally bid farewell to the physical store they built by themselves. In those last days, they remembered all the past events that had happened here. The unforgettable and dumbfounded memories that allowed them to grow up came to their mind on the last day. The influx of new and old customers, friends and former employees that came to say goodbye, kept them busy the whole day. Their last day at Esplanade was spent perfectly."
