Retailers are trying to offset falling sales on the back of meR isolation, says CEO of Infoline Ivan Fedyakov. For example, “Carousel” and “Ribbon” organized a free taxi to their hypermarkets. According to the HSE, only for the first week of April in stores “at home” traffic dipped by 20-30% and large stores by 40-60%.

the Consumer from such a variety of formats and services only wins. But for business to invest in the development of new formats in the current environment – a very risky, says Ivan Fedyakov. “Now the most suitable anti-crisis strategy for the retail sector is investing in improving the efficiency of existing formats and objects,” says Fedyakov. He notes that “Azbuka Vkusa” and “Coswell” already had the tools of the remote trade, and to develop this method of sales would have been more justified.
