Children's shopping in saving mode

They say: “they don’t save on children”, but buyers show behaviors typical of a strategy of reasonable saving in a crisis.

“In general, the strategy of buyers in crisis is to reduce the share of purchases. 64% of buyers reduce the average bill. 34% of shoppers shop less, ”said Ksenia Payzanskaya, Project Manager, Panel Research, Romir Holding. - The income of an average Russian family is 56 000 rubles per month. Spending on children's products in families with children from 0 to 14 years is 4% (2300 rubles). In the first quarter of 2015, spending on children's goods increased: in families with 1 children (30% of families) - by 18%, in families with 2 children - by 16%. ” There is an increase in indicators.
