9月3日,Lady M蛋糕店在上海IFC购物中心 ( Shanghai IFC Shopping Mall ) 开业了,这是中国内地第一家 Lady M蛋糕店。一开业,人们就争先恐后地去排队买蛋糕了。

很多人从早上4点就开始排队了。早上7点的时候 Lady M门口已经有非常多的人了。如果想要买一块蛋糕,一般要排3到4个小时队,还有人排了7个小时队才买到蛋糕。

有些人专门在 Lady M排队买蛋糕,买了蛋糕之后再把蛋糕卖给其他人,价格是原来的两倍到三倍。有些人不想排队,他们愿意花更多的钱买这些蛋糕,

9月5日,因为 Lady M门口排队的人太多了,为了人们的安全,Lady M不得不先关门。9月6日,Lady M再次开门,门口排队的人还是很多。

Lady M每块蛋糕的价格大概是70元,比一般的蛋糕店的价格贵得多。但是这一点都不影响人们对 Lady M蛋糕的喜爱。
