Shopping center attendance before the holidays increased by 30%

The price increase promised by retailers in 2015 made Russians rush into shopping: Watcom research company recorded an unprecedented increase in traffic in shopping centers in Moscow and St. Petersburg. For example, the number of visitors to household appliances and electronics stores on Saturday – Sunday, December 20–21, increased by more than 30% compared to the same weekend last year.
