The second confinement that we have suffered since October 30 fell like a sledgehammer for a large majority of traders. If at Back Market our sales are mainly made online, other specialists in our universe only depend on so-called sales, then the decision to close non-essential businesses was seen for most of them as a real disaster.
We decided to get things moving to help our colleagues get through this mess. Yes, that’s how we are at Back Market, we stick together because we have in our DNA the ambition to support physical businesses.
