The representatives of the trade have their input on possible support measures. “We would like to see assistance from the state in the form of a dialogue with landlords, which they are not ready, — said Sergey Belyakov, Chairman of the Presidium of the retail companies Association (ACORT). Or significantly reduce the lease payments until there is no funding source, or to link rent with the proceeds, which is being formed now, then it is economically reasonable”.
of Course, the launch of trade will be accompanied by enhanced security measures: they have not been canceled. Must be respected the distance, the buyers, the staff will use mask and gloves. Despite the costs, companies are ready.

And after the return of the Moscow retail trade sector, the trend should become even more positive.
