January 17, 2021 by No Comments



The curfew and confinements have changed the habits of the French. For example, the French population buys 2% more organic products than in 2019. Consumers have also responded to the call from traders to consume locally: 39% of them bought local products, i.e. 18% more than last year.

Textile purchases are down and the sale of bicycles is up 117% between May and June 2020. A scramble for computer equipment, the price of which has increased by an average of 23%, has also been noted. The French also do their shopping differently, as evidenced by the jump in shopping via drives, by 50% over the year. More free time also means more leisure: 42% of athletes have participated in online sports classes, and 24% of respondents say they have read more books. But the consumption of tranquilizers and sleeping pills also jumped 8% during the second confinement.
