Stocking my grocery shop for the Muslim festival of Sallah

Dear Mary,
good luck with your business!

Have you considered selling masks, liquid soap or disinfectants? Given the fact that many people will congregate for the festivities, supporting good hygiene practice may be a good idea and an additional source of business.
Maybe there's a local pharmacy, drugstore or sewing shop that you can partner with.

As member of the community, you may also print and display tips on staying healthy . The WHO has some ready-to-print posters available on their site:

Stay safe!

Kind regards from Switzerland,
