Mumbaikars get set to do some unlock shopping

While click-and-order has become the norm in the past few months, people will have to let go of their digital shopping habit and head out to do some fun browsing and buying. Shopping establishments, on their part, are paying attention to COVID protocols and are hopeful of better times ahead. Hamza Kachwala, of a gift and household items store in Bandra, says, “We are now open from Monday to Friday till 4pm, but footfalls are low. It may take a little time for people to step out for shopping. On our part, the staff is vaccinated with some awaiting their slots as per their age group.”
Darshit Shah, who works at a fabric store in Andheri, shares, “We don’t have that many walk-ins yet. The store is all ready, with sanitisation and other COVID preventive measures in place. Also, many of our staff members have got vaccinated.” Karunesh Bhatia, a vendor from South Mumbai, adds, “It will take time for people to switch back to their physical shopping habit, but we are hopeful that the situation will change. Contactless payments, social distancing will go a long way to build that.”
FEW TIPS TO KEEP IN MIND BEFORE YOU GO SHOPPING

One of the things that perked up dreary lockdown days for many folks, was to be able to indulge in a little retail therapy online and buy themselves an odd treat or two —whether it was clothes, stationery, make-up, a bag or even a showpiece for the house. All that’s just changed from June 7. Under the new unlock plan, shops selling essential and non-essential items are permitted to stay open till 4pm, however the latter will be open only on weekdays. So you can head out, browse around and pick up what you like, while making sure your face mask is on. With the lockdown rule being relaxed on the basis of COVID-19 positivity rate, it’s a welcome respite for city folks as they missed the buzz and vibrancy of the streets, stalls and shops that Mumbai is so known for.
Buying themselves a comeback treat
The monsoon is here and that is topmost on people’s minds. Affirms Keerti Jha, Dadar-based marketing professional, “I love shopping and I missed that part of my life. Since shops are now open, I am making it a point to go buy a bright neon raincoat or umbrella for the rainy season. I am so glad I can do that as the weather is also perfect for a walk now.”
With work-from-home (WFH) still the norm, stationery and electronic items are also topmost on most shoppers’ minds. Navin Verma, a corporate employee, says, “I have been wanting to buy a new portable coffee-maker and some headphones. I didn’t order them online as I believe these are things that one must personally check and buy. I plan to pay a visit to my store when it’s relatively empty. I also like to check out the new products on the shelves or the offers they have for shoppers.”
