12 Fashion Outlets In Bangalore With The Best Health Safeguards

Clicking add to cart might be fun while being stuck indoors, but for those of us who thrive on the traditional retail experience… It’s still a poor second. There’s something magical about walking down aisles filled with fabrics, accessories, silhouettes and styles, and carefully deciding which ones you want to take back home. There’s nothing quite like carving out that special window of time, when all the worries of the world melt away, as you physically put together combinations and styles to get an experience that simply can’t be replicated online. There’s a reason it’s called retail therapy, and not online shopping therapy! 

 

If you’ve been missing the physical act of shopping as much as I have over the last few months, and are longing to get a taste of it as we kick into the Unlock mode, but are also feeling twinges of apprehension, make friends with this list. Here are all the fashion stores and outlets in Bangalore that are taking every safety precaution (and then some) to ensure every shopper is safe.   

 

Why this list? Because we value your safety almost as much as you do. And we also know that the solution to our collective concerns lies in the middle of the two extremes of staying home in perennial fear and rushing out with a devil-may-care attitude, pretending that the world is exactly how we left it before the lockdown. The only real recourse we have is to arm ourselves with knowledge and make educated choices about all our future experiences. On our part, we wanted to make sure that neither your shopping experience nor your physical well-being, is compromised. So bridging the gap between these two seemingly opposing objectives, here are 12 crowd-favourite fashion stores in Bangalore that are taking great pains to ensure your safety, along with a list of all the safety measures they’re taking.  

 

Safety Precautions 

  • Regular sanitisation of stores 
  • Monitoring temperature at the point of entry + contactless sanitisation of hands
  • Temperature and hygiene monitoring of staff members 
  • Mandatory masks for customers
  • All garments steamed post-trial & trial rooms sanitised after each use 
  • Contactless payment options
  • Strict social distancing

In addition to several precautions like steaming of clothes post-trial, and sanitising the premises thoroughly and periodically, Central also has a "Store At Your Door" facility, that allows you take a virtual shopping tour, and select apparel right from the comfort of your home.

Allen Solly vouches to provide a contactless shopping experience to all its customers. The stores will put a limit on the number of people allowed to enter at any given point in time, and sanitizing stations have been put up at the entrance points. Allen Solly has also incorporated convenient display to minimize touchpoints.
