Kerala textile outlets hit despite lockdown relaxation

Kozhikode, Kerala

Kerala state government had announced lockdown relaxations, a week ago, which allow textile outlets to be open for sales. Despite this, the textile shops continue to be in severe crisis.

Textile shops were permitted to be open for three days a week for online shopping and home delivery. The people shopping for weddings were allowed to visit the shops for an hour a day.

But, the footfalls at the shops remain poor and the public is yet to get used to the concept of online shopping and home delivery.

Textile shop managers say that people find it difficult to determine the quality of the dress or saree materials through photographs. They added that sales were quite low and just enough to cover the expenses. Repaying loans and paying suppliers was a concern.

Due to this, shop managements have reduced their staff strength. The sales staffs at textile shops are anxious about their future if the lockdown continues.
