Brands PSA: Chinese Factories Are Closed for a Week for Labour Day

May 3, 2024 | 0 comments

Are your Chinese factories being slow to respond

If so, it’s likely because of the Labour Day (五一节) holiday

Across the country, families are taking a chance to wind down and travel, play mahjong, camp, hike, or just catch up on some sleep. I could use to do that myself! I mean mahjong… it’s been a while since I lost miserably to someone in China.

Expect factories to be abuzz again on May 5th, China time. Inboxes will be overflowing, so for anything urgent try pinging your factory rep on WeChat on the 5th
