Chinatown Businesses Expect a Subdued Chinese New Year Amid COVID-19

On Wednesday (Jan 27), Pagoda Street stallholders in Chinatown prepared to welcome Chinese New Year with traditional decorations and browsing shoppers. 

While customers are still making purchases, most business owners said the crowds are far less than the previous years. Given the COVID-19 restrictions that are still largely in place, Chinatown shop and stallholders said they expect sales fluctuation of up to 30 to 50%.  

For the well-being of their customers and workers, some stallholders said they have decided to move their businesses online, launching websites and products from time to time.
