Wing Woo Closed

The Wing Woo Ho store has finally closed last Friday. It has been doing business in Central for more than 80 years.
Mr. Kwan Moon-chui here in the front of his traditional grocery and preserved-food store on Wellington Street in Central Hong Kong.
His shop and the very popular outside market in neighbouring Graham Street are set for a controversial urban renewal plan.
Old houses and shops will disappear and new high-rises will be built in the area.
