Shopping in the Era of Covid-19 : Retail Sector’s Battle cry— “We Need This !”

Shopping styles have changed a lot for everyone ever since we have to deal with COVID-19 constantly as we go about our lives .Shopping for our daily needs as well as for special occasions take more into prominence now that the Christmas shopping season is already here.

Economically, COVID-19 had hurt the retail and non-essential services sector gravely. These businesses have now returned but to a limited capacity due to COVID-19 safety precautions. They lost a lot of revenue from decreased consumer spending and are aching to recover fast. The Christmas profit represents 25% of yearly profit. If they do not make it, they will close by the end of this year.

As these retail folks said in 1 battle cry: “We Need This!

Please support the retail business through responsible shopping. Support especially your local businesses as much as possible because they also pay local taxes which help support funding in services and infrastructure in your local community. Whether it is a gift basket or even a gift card through online shopping or even dropping by a physical store, it can make a big difference. Also, these retail folks could be your friend or neighbor supporting themselves and their families as well.

Shop till you drop as they say but do it well and carefully.

I personally will still celebrate Christmas this year (2020) and I will definitely shop for Christmas because I will not let COVID-19 steal my thunder nor rain on my parade.

We can do this, folks!!!!

    I’ll also celebrate Christmas. I’ve already bought some toys for my nephews. It’s nice of you to think of the less fortunate. Indeed some parts of the economy are more affected than others. 😦

  2. Truth. Especially, the small businesses everywhere have been badly hit. We must do our bit and support them πŸ™‚

  3. Whatever the circumstances, Christmas will survive!

    • Yes,indeed. Nice hearing from you again.πŸŽ„πŸŽ„πŸ›’πŸ›’ Christmas has been around more than 2000 years indeed.

  4. In the Christmas spirit, our brat of a President did recently say, β€œI may not release the vaccine, β€œCause you didn’t Vote For ME!”

    But at least you have the Christmas Spirit in Your Heart!

    • Thanks. Point taken.πŸŽ„πŸŽ„πŸ›’πŸ›’

  5. But if you live in America, please do NOT shop at Amazon or any big businesses from 11/13 through 12/01 in protest of our bogus elections.

      • Lucky you! πŸ™‚ (I thought you did but added the comment for any of your USA readers.)

      • πŸ˜πŸπŸ—½

    • YES!!!!πŸ›’πŸ›’πŸ›’πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜Š
