Kommersant: in June, the Trade Index in Yekaterinburg recovered by 20%
For two weeks of operation of shopping and entertainment centers (SEC) in Yekaterinburg, the Shopping Index grew by 3% and reached 80.41%. This was reported by the press service of the Watcom Group. As Roman Skorokhodov, president of Watcom group, noted, there is still a lag of about 20% compared to the same period last year.
“We can say that the Shopping Index has reached a plateau across the country. Somewhere there is a slight decline after meeting the deferred demand, somewhere – plus or minus 1%, ”said Mr. Skorokhodov.
Recall that shopping centers in the Sverdlovsk region have been closed since the end of March, when COVID-19 began to spread in Russia. On July 31, the governor of the Sverdlovsk region, Evgeny Kuyvashev, signed a decree on the opening of the shopping center, and on August 1, they began work.
