Some couples celebrating Valentine’s Day in South Africa have used their creative instincts to make the day special despite the pandemic and lockdown – and many small businesses are benefiting.
Kuben Naicker is the owner of a small business that sells personalised gifts and signage. He says the pandemic has helped his business this Valentine’s Day.
“It’s been much easier on me, number 1. Number 2, business has actually picked up because of my pricing. COVID has brought in business for me because of the signage that’s required; the awareness that’s required. So, everyone is spending money to get the awareness campaign going on COVID–19,” Naicker says.
