Germany’s Globus Sees Sales Growth Of 3.2% In FY 2019/2020
German retailer Globus has reported a sales growth of 3.2% to €7.95 billion in its financial year ended July 2020, with EBIT amounting to €284 million.
Globus hypermarkets in Germany generated sales worth €3.38 billion in this period, up 0.3% year-on-year, driven by a change in consumer behaviour due to the pandemic.
Jochen Baab, spokesperson for the Globus SB-Warenhaus, explained, "The trend is towards 'one-stop shopping', weekly shopping and home cooking, which is reflected in the size of the average shopping cart and a low shopping frequency, especially during the lockdown.”
