Odd that it hasn't impacted Apple nor the Samsung store, business as usual there.

Because samsung and apple have a completely different business model. The store is an independent, running under a xiaomi licence, so they are responsible for their stock imports. Short of having planned for the coronavirus crisis, and having ordered a massive buffer of phones in advance, they do not have the resource of grabbing them from their local warehouses. And, before you ask, they couldn't do that as stock is one of the major costs in retail, and would make the prices skyrocket. There is a reason why apple and samsung phones are way more expensive, and it's not their tech...

Righhhht, if only Xiaomi employees explained this, or in fact to any questions I've asked them in the past.
Thanks for the responses all, really helpful.

Don't think you can blame the virus! Ordered a Redmi note 7 with global rom for a friend two weeks ago and it's already arrived in the UK.

As I said, the physical store and the online store are two different entities. The online store is based in France , and covers the whole of western Europe, therefore they have more clout and can keep largwr stocks. The store here is an indie under licence, with the issues that go with that.
