Talk about busy.
This video, taken from a camera installed at Barnes Oysters in Invercargill, captures oyster lovers in their droves coming into buy the southern delicacy.
Barnes Oysters manager Graeme Wright said the camera was installed by Computer Supplyline Ltd in his shop for about four hours on Friday.
That day the store sold out of oysters.
Computer Supplyline Ltd owner Mike Wood said it was a dealer for GoPro video cameras and when they installed an eftpos machine at Barnes Oysters they decided to do a timelapse video to capture the steady stream of people coming in.
