Why You Should Shop Online
Shopping online in Sri Lanka can be a bit challenging. In many ways, the economy is struggling, and we can see many examples of this with the dramatic increase in the price of petrol, the country’s currency being devalued and the rise in unemployment. However, shopping online is very much a part of our culture and daily life here.
