Large chains in the regions want to be banned from working on weekends
They want to ban large retail chains in the regions from working on weekends and at night. The measure is necessary to equalize competition in the industry with small businesses.
As reported "News", with such an initiative, the head of the Federation Council Committee on Economic Policy Andrei Kutepov turned to the presidential aide Maxim Oreshkin. He called the dominant position of large market players a serious problem for regional retail. There are also problems with access to store shelves for small local producers.
The ban on 24-hour and weekend work for large chains should open up more opportunities for organizing fairs and non-stationary outlets and give local producers access to trade channels.
Recently, in the structure of retail trade turnover, there has been a tendency towards a decrease in the share of markets and fairs: 2015 - 2,2 trillion rubles, 2020 - 1,6 trillion rubles. In 2020, the share of retail chains, including federal and regional, increased and amounted to almost 39%. Moreover, the largest players in this volume account for about 40%.
