It gets even better...
Alma - a Polish owned grocery store with 45 stores in premium locations - has seen a huge fall in their share prices since the election.
The chart clearly shows us that their shares have gone from over 9zł per share to a mere 6.5zł. Far from being a good tax to help Polish businesses, it rather transpires that Polish businesses are being punished by PiS.
It gets even worse when you look at other Polish retailers - there's an excellent article here that explains it nicely.
The Polish chain Alma responded badly to the retail tax calculations, as their shares fell by 9 percent on Tuesday and already about 13 percent from the beginning of the year. According to estimates Money.pl these shops will pay 16.3 million zł tax, which will increase the losses that Alma incurred in the last two years. Raising prices is a necessity, and this will increase the outflow of customers to Biedronka, for example.
For PiS, destroying Polish business must be accomplished at all costs. The insane part is that this tax will hurt Empik as well, who are known to be in huge difficulties.
