Trade in lockdown: conflict over product range

Corona-Lockdon number 2: From Tuesday, November 17th to Sunday, December 6th, only the shops necessary to maintain the basic supply will remain open in Austrian retail. And there is a discussion about what food markets are allowed to sell.

Shutters down, shops closed. In mid-November, the scenario known from spring is repeated for Austrian retailers. In order to get the rising number of corona infections under control, the federal government has ordered the closure of all shops that are not necessary for the basic supply for several weeks.

Even before the shops close, it’s already in Spring debates that were sometimes heated to rekindle the hand’s non-food range. While all specialist retailers are locking up, the large supermarkets will also offer household or hobby items as well as electrical and electronic products, sporting goods and DIY equipment in addition to food or drugstore goods.
