Gotta put the quarantine to use
Compared to their sales from the past two weeks, Korea’s Lotte Mart experienced a whopping 336% gaming sales increase since the virus started spreading and more and more citizens are forced to self-quarantine at home.
Bored gamers aren’t the only needing fun at home though, as even little kids’ indoor entertainment like slides, trampolines, and kitchen games had a sales increase of around 30%.
‘It seems that people are looking for a lot of products that they can spend indoors with their children,’ said a Lotte Mart product rep.
As of writing, South Korea has amassed a total of 7,500+ confirmed Coronavirus cases, with the national death toll reaching more than 50 – making it one of the largest outbreaks outside China.
