Alternatives to online shopping for Christmas decorations

Now that the government has allowed the gradual re-opening of businesses in all sectors to help the economy recover amid the COVID-19 pandemic, consumers have more buying options than just online shopping. Malls and non-essential businesses have opened up again, albeit with a limited workforce and hours.

Divisoria, the quintessential shopping haven for bargain hunters, has seen a surge of Christmas shoppers in recent weeks as well. If you’re looking for massive choices, bulk buys, rock-bottom prices and the ability to haggle for even more discounts from sellers, Divisoria is hard to beat.

However, worrying reports of overcrowding in key streets and malls in the Divisoria area prompted Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domogoso to issue an appeal to eager Christmas shoppers to observe proper protocols, including social distancing and the proper wearing of protective equipment such as masks and face shields.

The Department of Health echoed the sentiment, likewise warning the public of the high risk of acquiring COVID-19 from crowded areas.

Online shopping vs in-store shopping
