Groceries have started to cancel discounts

Groceries have started to cancel discounts

18 марта 2022, 07:58
Since the end of last month, suppliers of X5 Group, the largest retailer in terms of turnover, which operates the Pyaterochka, Perekrestok and Chizhik chains, refused to carry out promotions, according to which Russians purchased goods cheaper than the regular price. Azbuka Vkusa also faced such a problem.

As RBC writes, a third of the suppliers in the Verny network refused discounts.

And we are talking about domestic producers - mainly those who depend on imported raw materials. They cancel promotions more often than foreigners, the source said.

It should be noted that last year, buyers in the largest Russian retail chains bought at a discount more than half of the goods in physical terms.

On the eve it was reported that Russian oil producers were in a difficult situation - they have nothing to buy raw materials for their products.

At the same time, the demand for socially significant goods has sharply increased in the country. Due to the situation around Ukraine and anti-Russian sanctions, citizens actively began to stock up on food, fearing a shortage and further rise in prices.
