DLF Malls redesigned for post-Covid-19 shopping
DLF, which operates a group of malls across India, is redesigning its retail spaces to facilitate social distancing for shoppers for when the business’ malls are allowed to reopen for post-Covid-19 shopping.
DLF is currently redesigning its malls to remove areas where people will be crowded together in order to reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission, TNN reported. The group of malls is removing all aisles in the middle of its malls and creating isolation rooms in its shopping centres. It is also installing plexiglass screens in its store counters to create a barrier between shoppers and staff.
On Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced at a government meeting that shopping malls, along with education institutions, religious institutions, and public transport are likely to remain shut beyond May 3 when the lockdown is currently scheduled to end, India Today reported. Although some states are allowing a more diverse array of stores to reopen, malls remain shut nationwide.
DLF’s Mall of India, the largest mall in the country, is currently celebrating its four-year anniversary. As the mall remains closed, the establishment has taken to its social media to celebrate with its customers and has posted numerous videos on its Facebook celebrating the milestone.
“The times spent and the memories shared together in the last four years have been nothing less than magical for us,” DLF Mall of India announced on Facebook. “Thank you everyone for joining us and making it an exciting ride.”
As of Tuesday morning, India has counted over 29,450 confirmed coronavirus cases with 939 fatalities and ranks 15th in the world for highest number of confirmed cases.
