According to the results of the survey conducted by SW Research for the Rzeczpospolita, only 20% of the respondents plan to stock up in connection with the epidemic. No such plans exist in 68%. Women, people aged 35-49, with higher education and inhabitants of the smallest towns declare more often that they are making inventories. At the same time, representatives of retail chains assure that they are prepared for increased demand and difficulties in supplies. Retailers prepare themselves, among other things, through stronger central warehouses – such a decision was made by Top Market.
