A Carrefour shop in Dalian in northeastern China's Liaoning Province resumed operation on Monday after two days of demonstration against "Tibet independence".

No one was in front of the hypermarket outlet on Huanghe Road on Monday, except for customers and passers-by in the rain, said Xinhua reporters at the scene.

Three police cars were parked on the other side of the road in front of the store.

A few customers were spotted shopping inside. A sales assistant at a shoe store at the entrance of Carrefour said the number of customers was normal because Monday was the first work day of the week and the rain had kept some people away.

The store is one of the three Carrefour outlets in the city. The Huanghe Road outlet was the only one closed on the weekend. It was business as usual for the other two.

Demonstrations against "Tibet independence" spurted up on Saturday in a few Chinese cities, including Beijing, Xi'an, Hefei,Qingdao, Wuhan and Kunming.

The rallies spread on Sunday to Jinan and Harbin.

Protesters numbered more than 1,000 in most of the cities and reached about 2,000 in Wuhan. They mainly gathered in front of Carrefour outlets chanting "Oppose Tibet independence" and "Oppose CNN's anti-China statements".

Carrefour has 112 stores on the Chinese mainland.
