As all non-essential shops and businesses were mandated to close for the safety and well-being of our citizens during the Circuit Breaker, it has certainly come as a relief when the Government announced the commencement of Phase 2 of the country’s reopening, starting today!

After having spent more than two months in the confines of our own homes, it’s no surprise that Singaporeans are looking forward to heading outdoors and creating new experiences again. Here are 5 tips from homegrown online retail platform ezbuy on maximizing this freedom and getting back to creating meaningful experiences in a new normal with the ones we love.

Have your home ready for groups of up to five by getting your furnishing needs and home appliance requirements sorted online. According to the purchase habits of ezbuy users during the Circuit Breaker, categories such as home appliances and gardening supplies have risen to the top as the most popular products. It’s time to spruce up your home in preparation of welcoming your extended family and friends back into your lives!

Step out in style with back-to-work outfits

After two months of not wearing pants, it’s finally time to get your back-to-office outfits ready! Whether you’re dressing to impress for a client meeting or looking for something quirky to showcase your personality on Casual Fridays, ezbuy’s hundreds of thousands of available options have got you covered, literally. For those of us who are still working from home, ezbuy also has a variety of Zoom-chic PJ options to keep you looking appropriately comfortable.

Dedicate more time to creating memories, shop for essentials online

While the country was on an almost-lockdown for two months, the only places we could legally venture to were supermarkets and other essential businesses. Now that we’re easing back to a new normal, perhaps it’s time to consider spending more time re-visiting local attractions and creating new memories. Skip the supermarket run and let ezbuy bring the pantry staples to your doorstep.

Embrace your new-found joy of online shopping

Shopping malls are great, but online retail opens you up to a world of options and this Circuit Breaker has gotten us well-acquainted with that. According to a Nielsen study published this month, online shopping habits continue to rise with two in five Singaporean consumers (37%) having increased their online shopping activities. In fact, ezbuy also reported a tripling in the 55 to 64 age demographics between April and May 2020.

Find the best deals online, ez-ly

In an effort to provide some relief to those hit by financial woes during this pandemic, ezbuy has set aside a budget of SGD$1 million to mark down various products on the platform, guaranteeing the lowest online prices for those items. Featuring discounts ranging between 20% to 70%, the markdown prioritises essential products such as groceries, daily necessities, home & living items as well as electronics and household appliances. The markdown will also be extended to products across every other category on the platform to fulfil different consumer needs.

The promotion is applicable for purchases made on or via ezbuy’s mobile app.
