There are changes in expenditure behavior. Instead of spending hours just to walk around the malls, people seem to run when being in the supermarket to get enough necessary products. They have to wake up so early to stand in a queue in front of the supermarket, then run as fast as possible to pick anything they can, then continue running to the cashier to queue up again for payment. People do not have time for clothes at the stores.
