Canary shopper has 300 euro budget for sales bargains
Hopes are high that the sales period in the Canary Islands will pro-duce an upbeat result.
Consumption for this cam-paign is expected to grow up to two per cent with a budget for purchases 30 per cent higher than the national average.
The Ministry of Tourism, Industry and Commerce of the Government of the Canary Islands, directed by Yaiza Castilla, has expressed “mode-rate commercial optimism” in the light of the results of the Christmas campaign and the forecasts for the sales that began on January 7th.
The increases in consump-tion will be between one and two per cent on the same previous campaigns, according to data collected from the sector by the General Directorate of Commerce and Consumption.
The Ministry highlights the greater dynamism in consump-tion that the Canaries have been representing in the sales season of recent years with an estimated cost of 300 euros on average, 30 per cent more than the national average of just over 200 euros per person.
The 2020 sales campaign has produced 3,700 additional work contracts, which repre-sents an increase in the hiring of companies of one per cent more compared to the same dates of the previous year.
The general director of Commerce and Consumption of the Government of the Canary Islands, David Mille, said the expectations for the winter 2020 sales are “moderately optimist-ic, given both the increase in contracting and consumption data that allow a boost in the Canarian economy as soon as the year begins. ”
Small business and large-scale entrepreneurs have also sent moderate satisfaction to the Canarian government in the face of the festive season results, with a rise in consumption of between one and two per cent over the results of the Christmas period 2018/2019.
