Clicking add to cart might be fun while being stuck indoors, but for those of us who thrive on the traditional retail experience… It’s still a poor second. There’s something magical about walking down aisles filled with fabrics, accessories, silhouettes and styles, and carefully deciding which ones you want to take back home. There’s nothing quite like carving out that special window of time, when all the worries of the world melt away, as you physically put together combinations and styles to get an experience that simply can’t be replicated online. There’s a reason it’s called retail therapy and not online shopping therapy!
If you’ve been missing the physical act of shopping as much as I have over the last few months, and are longing to get a taste of it as we kick into the Unlock mode, but are also feeling twinges of apprehension, make friends with this list. Here are all the fashion stores and outlets in Pune that are taking every safety precaution (and then some) to ensure every shopper is safe.
Why this list? Because we value your safety almost as much as you do. And we also know that the solution to our collective concerns lies in the middle of the two extremes of staying home in perennial fear and rushing out with a devil-may-care attitude, pretending that the world is exactly how we left it before the lockdown. The only real recourse we have armed ourselves with knowledge, and make educated choices about all our future experiences. On our part, we wanted to make sure that neither your shopping experience nor your physical well-being, is compromised. So bridging the gap between these two seemingly opposing objectives, here are 8 crowd-favourite fashion stores in Pune that are taking great pains to ensure your safety, along with a list of all the safety measures they’re taking.
- Regular sanitisation of stores
- Monitoring temperature at the point of entry + contactless sanitisation of hands
- Temperature and hygiene monitoring of staff members
- Mandatory masks for customers
- All garments steamed post-trial & trial rooms sanitised after each use
- Contactless payment options
- Strict social distancing
