While most shops are usually full until the very last moment before Christmas, this year it is different.
Anti-epidemic measures closed the shops on December 19. Books, electronic devices, furniture and clothes can be bought in online shops instead until January 10, 2021.
Only groceries, pharmacies and drugstores are open, similar to the lockdown in spring, the economic daily Index reported.
Some supermarket chains in the last days before Christmas extended opening hours. On the other hand, they had to limit the goods they can sell to their customers.
The Public Health Authority issued an order stating that shops exempted from the ban are solely those satisfy fundamental needs. Customers will not be able to buy candles, clothes or toys.
