For months (most) New Yorker’s have been cooped up at home (or wherever they are) under quarantine orders and now that some states (a handful like New York) are slowly opening back up, people are ready to (been ready) venture out again and try to regain some semblance of social activity which includes shopping for things, other than food, medicine, and other essentials.
Yes……shopping for clothes and other things (just to get out of the damn house!) and beactive outside. And of course dining out (outside literally!) Hooray! However there are rules (standing 6 feet apart, and wearing masks when not possible) that must be followed when doing so.
So when going out to shop during Covid-19 times has it’s pros and cons. One of the pros: is that you wont have to deal with crowed shops (as they are only letting a certain amount of people in at a time) and they are some really great deals, sales, and promotions happening right now to lure shoppers out.
You can find some great bargains for some great clothes, but one of the cons: is that your size might not be available (and may have to order online) which may leave you with fewer choices for deals.
Shopping online has surged and seems to continue to so, and who knows what the retail/shopping landscape will be in the coming months, but for now we all must wait as covid runs its course and see how it shapes how and the way we shop.
