Queues and shops full of customers: for some food stores, the second confinement is synonymous with good business. In the Parisian butcher shop Marguerite, for three weeks, customers have been more numerous. With the reconfinement, the French have returned to the stoves. “I cook a lot more since I don’t go to a restaurant at all“, says a client.
More buyers, and bigger baskets. Result: a turnover that leaps overnight. “Since the re-containment, there has been an increase in the order of 20% to 25%“, considers Alain Grandière, the manager. Same observation at the Beillevaire cheese dairy: sales are up, by around 8%.”I miss the cinema, I miss the theater, I miss the concerts, the restaurants… So I want to go to the good traders and have fun“says a client.
