Maashed R. Abdullah Director, Dressmen Limited said that, due to pandemic when retail stores were closed, we faced some order drop, however, few months later when stores were started to open again, we again got more orders. And right now most of the factories are overbooked. That time, just beginning of the pandemic, we were at dead loss, because customer’s reaction was different. The challenge we faced to read customers mind, and in my experience, continuous communication with customers helped us to predict the situation and we planned accordingly.
