Although alcohol has never been one of the basic needs of life (some may vehemently oppose), its calming effect helps the consumer to ‘happy’ state of mind; needed more than ever especially at this time. The global pandemic and the resulting lockdown orders prevented most bars or retail shops from the sale of alcohol; this has led to people scanning and searching for alternate means to get their desired liquors. The best way to get your supply of alcohol without breaking the laws of the state (lockdown order) is by looking at online/e-commerce stores and delivery companies. While the pandemic was raging, and the difficult periods of the corona-virus forced families and individuals to their homes, Home delivery businesses were the only businesses allowed to operate. A lot of companies had to shift their major operations online, and this has led to an increase in patronage for e-commerce sites
