Shops in malls permitted to open for business from Tuesday (April 14) included banks and finance-related outlets, smartphone repair centres, supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants (takeaway service only) and zones selling electrical appliances, kitchenware, computers or construction equipment and related items.
