A man drove his car into a convenience store in eastern China to save time from having to park his vehicle, according to Chinese media.

Surveillance footage from the store in Zhenjiang, Jiangsu province, showed a grey car being driven through the doorway late on Saturday night.

The footage was shared by the People’s Daily on its Twitter account on Tuesday. It did not identify where in Jiangsu the incident took place.

In the video, a staff member manning the convenience store is seen responding in shock and rushing over to attend to the driver.

He then passes several items from the shelves in the shop to the driver before collecting some cash and returning the change.

The car then reverses slowly out of the shop as the staff member looks on and waves goodbye.

The driver bought a pack of potato chips and a bottle of yogurt, according to a post on Sina.com’s Weibo account.
