Biedronka is as tough as they come, they hold no prisoners and will dump one brand for another to keep products at the prices they want.
Yep. Now, if 95% of suppliers are Polish, that means Biedronka are going to find savings through the suppliers instead. Doesn't take a genius to work this one out...
And so it begins.
Small and medium entrepreneurs associated with the trade network Leviathan protest against the bill on the tax on retail sales. According to them after the entry into force of the law threatens them with bankruptcy... Businesses affiliated with the Polish trade network Leviathan directed an open letter to Prime Minister Beata Szydło and parliament. They explain that, among others, that the effect of the entry into force of the law on tax on retail sales will fall hundreds of small businesses and loss of jobs for more than 23 thousand people.
According to traders, it will cause drastic social consequences and "the danger of losing the existence of tens of thousands of workers and their families." "At risk will be the fate of our suppliers: local food producers, wholesalers, bakeries, meat processing plants, the farmers supplying vegetables and fruits, with whom we share a long-term partnership"
As I said all along, this tax will hurt Polish businesses and Polish consumers. Where's the Party spokesman when you need him to defend job losses and bankruptcies?
Polonius seems to have gone rather silent lately, so just to show what retail thinks about the tax :
According to Jaśkowski, domestic traders are angry because they counted on preferential treatment. More specifically about creating a level playing field between them and the large retailers run with foreign capital.
As predicted, this tax will do nothing but harm Polish customers and Polish businesses. PiS couldn't care less, as they couldn't be bothered to even meet the retailers. Why would they care, when they only care about themselves and their very high paid government jobs?
