Department stores have been employing a range of public health practices after being allowed to reopen to the public.
In central Bangkok, department stores such as Siam Paragon have now been open for over three days and seeing a regular stream of customers, particularly in their food courts. Several branches of The Mall have noted considerable interest from shoppers picking up necessities and lining up to use bank services.
Diners have readily returned to restaurants, which are operating under strict health measures, requiring dine-in guests to show on a Mor Prom application that they have received at least one dose of vaccine or that they’ve been cleared of COVID-19. Executives of both department stores have stated they accept the current situation as part of modern life and have committed to adapting their services accordingly.
