Fruit retailers lament drop in sales after initial Coronavirus-induced boom – Citi Business News


Summary short_text

About six months after the initial spike in demand and clamour for fruits of all types, to boost the immune system of Ghanaians to ward off COVID-19, some retailers of fruits say they have experienced a surprisingly significant drop in sales.
Faustina Amissah, a fruit retailer at Asylum Down in Accra said even though she used to make GHS300 sales a day pre-COVID, she's now grateful to average GHS100 a day after going through days when she only sold GHS40.
"Because of the pandemic, peoples' salaries have been slashed. Before COVID-19, people used to do a lot of shopping within the first few days of receiving their salaries. From the middle of the month onwards, people become cash strapped and it affects the sales we make. The situation has improved. I used to make sales of GHS40 a day but now I make sales between GHS100 and GHS150 and that is good."
