Trade in Fiera de Santana recorded an increase in sales on the occasion of Children’s Day. It is possible to see many customers shopping, especially in toy stores. Many retailers were interested in increasing and diversifying their inventory and many different colors and toys occupied the shelves.
The Acorda Cidade report was aimed at checking forecasts and the most in-demand items. Mayara Castro, a saleswoman at a party and fashion store, commented on the movement of trade and prices. In her opinion, maintaining prices similar to last year attracts customers.
He added: “Prices are stable and there have been no increases. We’re also seeing customer feedback from last year for this year, which is very crowded because of the prices.
For Pollyana Santos, store manager, the movement has been gradual as the date approaches and customers become more demanding when choosing gifts for children that also fit their wallet.
We feel that the demands these days are slower. But today the best has dawned, and people are looking for more affordable games. “People are looking to give gifts to everyone, but the most expensive toys are for the ‘mum and dad’ crowd, and uncles and grandparents are looking for something affordable to give the kids,” Pollyanna explained.
Regarding the third most important date for trade in Brazil, shop owners are optimistic. According to Elizabeth Piedad, owner of a toy store, it is expected that the demand for gifts will be greater until Thursday (12).
“I have already provided security, and I have hired more salespeople to be able to serve customers well. If you are not served well, I apologize. Sometimes, when there are too many people, you can’t take care of everyone,” he commented. “Come quietly.”
Among the most in-demand games, traditional games remain at the top. The doll, the ball and the car are the sales leaders in stores. According to class, clothing and shoes were less popular when buying gifts.
“There are carts, and there was a ball worth R$36 per dozen, but it’s gone and thank God it’s not there anymore. Now there’s one for R$40, and what he sells most is soccer balls and regular dolls. The doll just arrived today, it costs R$5.50 Brazilian, we sell it for R$5 and it will be a huge seller,” Elisabet concluded enthusiastically.
