A mall in Sao Paulo is giving Brazilians a new meaning to window shopping.

Shoppers can now drive through the aisles of the Botucatu mall in Sao Paulo state for a spot of retail relief amid the pandemic.

Shop assistants then come out to the vehicle to hand over items that were pre-purchased online.

Managers at this mall hope the initiative will drive back customers to stores amid a crash in consumer spending.

Latin America's largest economy is expected to shrink by 6.5% this year.

The sight of seeing a car roll out in the mall had Twitter amused.

As of Friday (July 3), Brazil has confirmed over 1.5 million coronavirus cases and more than 62,000 deaths.
