Traficar helps outlets

Factory Centres, managed by Neinver, established cooperation with Traficar less than half a year ago. Within its framework, dedicated parking spaces have appeared near the entrances to the centres. For Factory’s customers, it is another opportunity to easily access outlets located outside the city centres – in Annopol and Ursus in Warsaw, Modlniczka near Kraków and Luboń on the outskirts of Poznań. And in the period of cooperation they have been lent 4 thousand times.

Who’s behind the Trafficar wheel?

Factory’s customers who rent cars in the vicinity of the centres are almost 50% of young people – aged 22 to 29 years. The total number of people who came to the outlets and left them with shopping is about halfway through. Moreover, in the first week of October, Factory’s customers coming to the centre by Traficara car received a voucher in the amount of PLN 50. The coupon displayed in the application had to be exchanged for a gift card at the information point during the first hour of shopping. As many as 700 such cards were distributed in Warsaw, Kraków and Poznań.

In mid-October, the second edition of the joint Factory and Traficar campaign was launched. Customers of the outlet could exchange a receipt in the amount of at least 200 PLN for a voucher in the amount of 20 PLN to be used in the Traficar. 350 vouchers were distributed.

Poles on fashion shopping in the outlet

One third of Poles visited any outlet in the last year. It was most often done by people with the declared highest level of income (42%), people with higher education (44%) and residents of cities with 20-199 thousand people (43%). Age has a specific influence on visiting outlets. The percentage of visitors usually ranges from about 35 to 25%. Distinguishing groups are people aged 25-34, almost half of whom visited any outlet, while on the other hand senior citizens over 65 years of age were the least likely to do so (21%). The likelihood of visiting the outlet increases with education and income levels.

Factories most frequently visited

Factory/Futura Park, popular among people aged 25-34, people with income over 5,000 PLN, respondents with higher education, as well as survey participants living in the largest cities (not surprisingly, due to the presence of Factory in Kraków, Warsaw, Wrocław or Poznań), was the most frequently indicated outlet among visitors. Neinver, the operator of four Factory outlet centres, reported that these facilities increased their sales by 5% and that 12.3 million customers visited them (including Futura Park, this would be 4% and 16.8 million respectively). Last year, Neinver invested in these centres in renovation and, in the case of the Kraków facility, in the construction of a restaurant zone (completed in March 2018).

First Take&Go store openes in Poznan

post-image

On 10 September in Poznan the first Take&Go store was opened. This is a new format of unmanned grocery stores, developed by Surge Cloud. Thanks to advanced technological solutions, customers do not have to self-service checkout – a special system connected with the Take&Go application in a smartphone does it for them.

Number of unmanned shops is growing

Take&Go is not the first unmanned shop in Poland – the first one was Bio Family Supermarket in Poznan, where since October 2018 you can shop around the clock – the shop is opened thanks to a special card or application and customers use automatic cash registers. However, Take&Go is distinguished by its technological advancement – it is a cashierless store. This solution is much closer to the American Amazon Go.

No more free plastic bags at stores in Poland

post-image

Poles started to pay for some disposable plastic bags in shops in January 2018. At present, all plastic bags, with the exception of thin disposable bags for packing bread and vegetables, are paid for. The fees are valid from 1 September 2019.

Extension of fees for plastic bags

The introduction of fees for plastic bags (15 to 50 micrometers thick) in 2018 has not brought any environmental benefits. The environmental effects of reducing the use of plastic bags were not achieved because, as the Ministry of the Environment says, some shops started to deliver bags over 50 micrometers thick to their customers.

As a result, changes were introduced and from 1 September 2019 all plastic bags over 15 micrometers thick are charged in shops. The exception is bags used for packing bread or vegetables. For every…
