Christmas does not bring cheers to shopkeepers any more

Christmas season usually brought cheers to shopkeepers but now they say with items being available on line, there are less visitors to shops.

Lacking of parking space in urban areas has also adversely affected their business.In times that have gone by, shopkeepers eagerly looked forward to the festive season.

But now people can order online and also pay less. Besides, big shopping malls have many things to offer under one roof.

Food courts at shopping malls are a big attraction. With most people having cars, lack of parking space is also a deterrent.
