Naturally, many vendors for the Chinese New Year Bazaar are affected by the decision. They are looking forward to the bazaar after a year full of hardships due to the pandemic. Most of the vendors have been selling goods at the bazaar since its establishment in 1989. As most of these vendors are from the older generation and strong competition, they are not capable of selling goods online.
