A Grecian phrase goes like this: ‘May you live in interesting times.’ And interesting times are upon us indeed. A novel virus calls for novel combat measures, so social distancing has become the world’s weapon of choice.
But the isolation need not be a curse. Yes, being restricted to your home is never easy, but we have the blessed internet to keep us company. Turn to online shopping to treat yourself and to support businesses around you.
If you’ve been eyeing that lehenga for a while, now is a great time to buy it for the upcoming festive season (because we will get through this, and there will be much to celebrate when we do). It’s also a great idea to buy your holiday gifts in all this free time rather than be caught in the last-minute rush. Finish ordering all your gifts right now so when the holidays roll around, you’re armed with fabulous presents for your loved ones. Sales are aplenty too, so if you’re looking for a bang for your buck, now is the time.
In trying times such as these, it’s important to support businesses that are supporting their employees, and putting safety above sales.
We at A+CO have shut down our flagship London store until the crisis is averted, and our entire UK and India teams are working from home.
So while there’s no shame in turning to online shopping to cope, do a hygiene check (pun unintended) before you chose a particular e-shop. And remember to sanitise your delivery packages and offer sanitiser to your delivery agents too!
