“Speaking in percentages, our stationery partners tell us that the increase was between 40 and 50 percent; As for the other lines, such as the sale of uniforms and footwear it was not really much, it can be said that it was 30 and 15 percent respectively, compared to 2020, but if we compare it to past years, obviously it is not significant.”

Regarding the expectations for this month, the president of Canaco indicated that although they hope that a respite can be given, they do not consider that the reactivation of some turns due to the issue of the pandemic.

“We are always waiting for this to improve, unfortunately as things are right now, there has not been much mobility for sales of other spins to be generated as used to happen in the month of September with events, because with this the entire economy since clothing, footwear, accessories, services, music, flowers, tablecloths and everything else are bought, unfortunately there is no such opening. ”
