Currently, sales of fruits and vegetables in stores vary within 3 tons per day.

After the state of emergency and the closure of all food markets, sales of fruits and vegetables in local supermarkets in Moldova increased by no more than 15%. According to EastFruit, the leaders of some chains, at present, the volume of sales of fruits and vegetables in stores varies within 3 tons per day (retail outlets with an area of ​​0.5-1.0 thousand square meters located in sleeping areas can provide such a turn ) Supermarkets in business and administrative centers of Chisinau, due to the suspension of the active work of organizations and enterprises, are able to sell less than 1 ton of fruits and vegetables per day.

At first glance, there is a certain imbalance. So, before the introduction of the state of emergency and self-isolation, markets accounted for 40% of all Moldovan food retail. However, the turnover of supermarkets over the past month has grown only by the mentioned 15%. Merchants explain this by the fact that the average check in food retail has increased, but the flow of customers has decreased – in the case of individual large stores only up to 1 thousand people a day. Affected by the fact that because of the negative psychological attitude, people are less likely to make purchases. Secondly, most students of educational institutions of all levels, and those in the Moldovan capital about 100-120 thousand, left Chisinau.

Retail expects tangible redistribution of commodity flows and restoration of demand no earlier than the end of August. Until then, sales dynamics are unlikely to change significantly.
