The opening of a Calgary market-style grocery store descended into chaos with people climbing over each other to gain first entry.

Savana Bazaar, a retail destination inspired by traditional bazaars located throughout South Asia had its grand opening today and hundreds of Calgarians pushed together, ignoring social distancing rules.

Pictures and videos of the event were posted on Twitter:

Calgary Police Service arrived on the scene and they said they were concerned with the safety of the patrons and shut down the whole event.

Jasneet Bal stood in line waiting with the large crowd and told Dan McGarvey, "as soon as people started crowding in we were like, oh no, this is definitely not safe, we've been following all precautions, and now people are pushing up against you, there was a lot of elderly people here who were getting pushed over and nobody was helping them up and then it got to the point where it was like cops were definitely needed."
