National Day holiday fuels consumer spending
Retailers and online groceries saw increasing sales over the weeklong National Day holiday as home consumption boomed.
Seasonal food and snacks, on-demand food delivery and outdoor activities were most popular.
Jessie Yan, who invited her friends over to her new apartment in Minhang District, said food delivery was her preferred choice over the weeklong break.
“I ordered wonton and fried vegetables for female friends at my place and have a relaxed time together,” she said. “It proved to be swift and convenient.”
Shanghai shoppers have also been favoring alcoholic drinks for gifts among family members and friends.
