In the coronavirus crisis, retailers face an unchecked demand for specific convenience goods – the demand for toilet tissue was three times higher (+211%).

A special evaluation of experimental data by the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) shows that the sales figures of selected products reached extremely high levels in the week from 16 to 22 March and in the three weeks before. The demand for soap, for example, was four times as high in the 12th calendar week as in the six preceding months (+337%), while the demand for toilet tissue was three times higher (+211%).
