Three-day food rate sold out in a day in Kamchatka

Three-day food rate sold out in a day in Kamchatka

The rush of food demand began in Kamchatka. Some stores sold three times more than usual in a day. 

According to information "Merchant”, Due to the spread of the cornavirus, residents of the Kamchatka Territory began to buy food and essential goods. According to the Minister of Economic Development and Trade of the region Dmitry Korostelev, there is no shortage of goods, and stocks in retail chains will last for another one or two months.

Kamchatka Governor Vladimir Ilyukhin completely ruled out a possible shortage of products: there are no prerequisites for such a situation in the region. The reason is in the already created stock, since ship products are brought into the region three times a week, and the networks are always ready for possible supply disruptions.

At the same time, the minister noted that the closure of several large warehouses and wholesale bases for accounting events could affect such an increase in sales. According to him, the wholesalers had to inventory the stocks just because of excessive demand in order to find out what goods and how much was left in stock.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia recommended that retail chains do stock of goods. At the same time, Russian President Vladimir Putin does not advise Russians stock up on groceries.
