Czech retailers hit by coronavirus crisis start summer sales early

Retailers in the Czech Republic have begun their summer sales earlier than in previous years because of the coronavirus crisis, the Czech News Agency reported. Some shops have started offering discounts a fortnight earlier than usual and in some cases summer sales have more or less followed directly on from spring ones.

Markdowns are also higher than usual, retailers say. Customers are most likely to find bargains in big cities, which normally attract foreign tourists.
