“Quikr’s Stillopen website can tell you which grocery shop are open/closed near you and the nearest COVID-19 centre to help you save time”
With the ongoing 21-day coronavirus lockdown in India, you may be facing difficulties in locating a grocery store that’s open near you or any shop for that matter to buy essential goods. You may also be looking for a COVID-19 centre near you to get tested for coronavirus. To help you in these tough times, Quikr has launched Stillopen.in, which is a website that has been created just for this problem. Stillopen.in is said to help users identify whether the nearest grocery stores, hospitals, pharmacies, COVID-19 centres, and other stores classified as “essentials” are open/ close in real-time. It even tells how far away you are from the store. “Stillopen is an initiative to support people during the COVID-19 outbreak,” said Quikr in its press release. “This being a crucial time for India, the only way to break the chain of infections is to stay at home and step out only when there’s an absolute need for essentials.”
