Bijou Brigitte fashion accessories reports a significant drop in sales for the current year. After 241.3 million euros in the same period of the previous year, Hamburg’s turnover fell to 153.5 million euros in the first nine months of 2020. The company reports a decrease from 1,017 to 1,042 in the number of branches. “The number of branches in the Bijou Brigitte Group is expected to decrease moderately by the end of 2020 compared to the previous year,” said Bijou Brigitte.
The corona pandemic in particular had a negative impact on developments, as a result of which stores had to temporarily close in order to contain the spread of the virus. “Due to the reopening of the branches and the slightly improved economic sentiment, there were signs of recovery in the third quarter, which were recently thwarted by the renewed increase in corona infections, for example in Spain and Portugal,” said Bijou Brigitte.
