Hopefully, the biggest health risk connected with pandemic is behind us, at least for now. Economic resonance of the government decisions will be noticeable for long and we cannot predict what scale it would be. It is worth noticing that building materials sale branch in Poland was in better situation than our colleagues from other European countries, e.g. in France, Germany, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy and Latvia this sector was completely stopped for few weeks.
New restrictions connected with sale caused many perturbations and necessity of additional expenses to secure a safe customer service. As a network, PSB did not record any cases of sickness as well as conflictive situations with customers were not many.
Retail sale in April gave good results, though customers behaviour changed – they purchase less often but they spent much more. Market situation does not reflect on PSB Partners’ purchases – they reduced their supplies, especially in the beginning of the pandemic which resulted in over a dozen sale slump at the Central office in April.
This letter shows the sale data of PSB network in the first quarter of 2020 with the difference between retail and wholesale channels. Despite the difficulties, PSB Partners continue their investments – PSB retail network was enlarged by two shops in the previous week. Though, few of the planned shops will be opened late.
