With some cities in lockdown and a pandemic crisis in place, with the number of cases increasing every day, Christmas Shopping List will be a bit of a challenge for everyone. Up until now, small gatherings are still permitted, so maybe you should plan this vacation for family only. But Santa will find everyone, so Business Review made a list of shopping ideas for the loved ones.
This year’s list will focus entirely to Romanian entrepreneurs and Romanian businesses in order to sustain small businesses. Buying locally also helps keep money circulating in the community, while the local economic return from independent businesses is on average 48% of revenue from independent businesses. Chain retailers, by contrast, recirculate only 13.6% of their revenues in the communities where they do business. When you factor in buying local products at a local independent store, that percentage is even higher.
