The situation that has arisen as a result of the emergence of COVID-19 has significantly affected our consumer habits. Shopping malls remained closed for a long time, which of course, contributed to the problematic procurement of everything we needed.
But, as the end of the pandemic approaches, restrictive measures are being reduced, all of which have resulted in the reopening of our favorite shopping malls. Our team visited the shopping centers in Skopje, where we were assured on the spot that the protocols prescribed due to the situation with COVID-19 are carefully monitored and respected.
