Auchan Romania, one of the big retailers on the local market, announced that its sales have doubled in the last couple of days. The company’s representatives say they are making considerable efforts to support the increased demand.

“In these days of escalation of the medical situation, of agitation, fear, news in flow - domestic and international, in addition to the call for calm, responsibility and trust, which we have been doing for more than two weeks, I want to express sincere public thanks to all the employees in Auchan stores and services and, on a larger scale, to all the employees in retail, simple people who, every day, through important efforts, come to your support to provide you with the necessary ones. Only from the beginning of this week we have been sending 120 trucks daily to our stores, sales have increased a lot, even 100% for a few days, the number of customers is the same. Our people are working in quite difficult conditions to handle the increased orders, freight pallets, filling shelves, everything in terms of ensuring hygiene and safety for customers. I bow to everyone for the responsible work they do, for the solidarity they demonstrate and I assure them that all their efforts will be rewarded. I am proud that we have such teams,” said the general manager of Auchan Retail Romania, Ionuţ Ardeleanu, quoted by Agerpres.
