Center Manager for the West Hills Mall in Accra, Jacob Quarmson says business and income have significantly dropped by 70 percent since the lockdown.
According to the Manager, the previous Easter Mondays compared to that of the current year showed there has been a ginormous difference due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
He stated that before Ghana recorded a case of the COVID-19 virus, and consequently the lockdown, around 20,000 individuals visited the office routinely. However, things have taken a plunge and under 4,000 guests are only attended to.
“A typical Easter Monday at West Hills Mall is crowed. The place will be full with a lot of cars parked. Families walking around buying stuff and some having fun.
“But as you can see for yourself, people are not here in their numbers due to the Covid-19 pandemic. And this is having a serious impact on the mall,” he said.
Mr Quarmson was hopeful that the dark days would before long be over for organizations and residents to go back to their normal duties.
“Everybody is feeling the pinch, but it is our prayer that Covid-19 will be over and we can come back to our normal life,” he said
