Ms Doris Yeo, managing director of Shanghai School Uniforms, said its queues have been manageable.
She told The New Paper: “Due to Covid, we introduced an appointment booking system to comply with the safe distancing measures.
“We still get customers coming without a booking and have to turn them away when the queues get too long. We have had a huge increase in our online sales this year compared with previous years which had almost zero take-up.”
However, some parents face difficulties making online purchases and have issues with making payment, said Ms Yeo.
Some parents also prefer going to the store with their children to see the uniforms.
“Though the children cannot try on the uniforms, some parents feel more comfortable when they can feel the sample uniforms and put it on their children’s backs to gauge the size.”
