5 Challenges Shop Owners Could Relate To During The Pandemic Lockdown

June 23, 2020

1) Total Lockdown

The government announced there was going to be a lockdown, that meant no more opening of the shop every day.

2) When you were just at home waiting for the orders to come.

Everyone was on lockdown and scared so no one was ordering anything, so you were just there like when will this end?

3) No sales, no money.

You were not making any sales because the shop was closed and you weren’t selling online so you started thinking of how to do money ritual.

4) Goods in Shop

You finally got an order but realised that the goods were in the shop and there was no movement. 

5) Essential goods and services only

You decided to risk it and deliver. You got stopped and sent back because you sell clothes. You just stood there looking at the policeman like clothes are essential too because people have to cover their bodies.

We are sure a lot of vendors and SMEs can relate to these struggles that were faced during the lockdown when everyone had to stay at home. Well except those that were already selling with their Flutterwave store. 

They were like… If they like let them lockdown till next year.
