4 Useful Tips for Last-Minute Raya Shopping

In a few days’ time, it will be Hari Raya. Although Hari Raya may be a little different this year with the conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) still underway, preparations still need to be done! For those who are prepared to do last-minute Raya shopping, here are some useful tips for you!

Start with a shopping list

Shopping lists are always your best friend, especially during last-minute shopping stints! Write down and categorise all the ingredients needed for the Raya meals and kuihs, any cleaning supplies you might need, decorations for the home and others. If you have to go to multiple locations to purchase these items, always plan your drive ahead, keeping in mind the outlet operation times now with CMCO still in place.

Focus on the essentials first

If you really have to forego certain items due to time constraint, leave the non-essentials to the end. Prioritise the most essential items on your list first, such as food items and daily necessities. If you want a more seamless shopping experience without spending too much time on queuing, you can always choose to order your groceries online!

Look out for the festive season sale

The festive season is also a time when retailers usually offer deals or discounts on festive-related items. These include Raya clothes, electrical appliances, furniture, even kuih Raya. Look around for sale or discounts to help you save as you purchase. AEON BiG at The Palette by Platinum Victory offers irresistible deals on a wide variety of items during Ramadan and Hari Raya.

Keep to your budget

While you may be driven to spend more during the festive season with all the things that are needed to buy, always be mindful of your spending. For some, a ‘Raya budget’ may help to keep track of spending habits. 

Seamless shopping at The Palette by Platinum Victory

Going out to do your Raya shopping during CMCO may be a little inconvenient. For a more convenient shopping experience to buy food or groceries that you may need during Raya, The Palette by Platinum Victory’s newly launched ‘Curbside Pick-up’ service is your best choice! Participating tenants such as AEON BiG Danau Kota, Good Luck Kopitiam, McDonald’s and many more allow you to order and collect your order without needing to stand in line with others or leave your car!
