Festive season brings relief to shopkeepers

The festive season is proving to be a boon for shopkeepers across the country.

Footfall has increased, helping them recover financial loss they suffered due to COVID-19.

In Delhi, shopkeepers at Lajpat Nagar market were elated with rise in customers.

"With festive season starting, crowds have started pouring in.

We covered 70-80% sale yesterday.

We're hoping for a good weekend," said VK Gupta, VP, Lajpat Nagar Traders Association.

Sarojini Nagar market also witnessed a surge in footfall as customers started thronging shops.

"Customers have increased by 10-15% compared to last month.

We are hoping that festive season will be good for both business and footfall," said Prem Goel, Shopkeeper.

Meanwhile, shopkeepers in Bengaluru breathed a sigh of relief as their sale slightly increased during Navratri festivities.
