“It has been a long time since we have dine-in customers at our shop. I am sure they are bored with eating at home as well. 

“I am hopeful that as a result of this decision, all businesses can gain make more profits and weather this storm together,” he said.

Mohamad Sabri also hopes that the government will provide detailed information on the SOPs so that all business activities can run smoothly and efficiently with strict compliance to the SOPs.

“We should all be hopeful as the government is trying its best to help us.

“All business owners in Kubah Ria, for instance, should work together to attract more customers. When many people come to visit our shops, we will be able to make more profits,” she said.

Norhayati pointed out that there was a significant difference between customers who dined in and those who ordered takeout or made online orders.

“Prices may vary depending on the options selected by the customers but in most cases, the dine-in option will always be less expensive than the other options. 

“It is cheaper to dine-in as we do not have to charge delivery services and share our profits with the online merchants. I am hoping that once we are allowed to operate, people will continue to support us and come to our shops in Kubah Ria,” she said.
