This is the highest percentage of the survey’s historical series, which began in 2016.

According to the coordinator of Business Development at Fecomércio PR, Rodrigo Schmidt, the greater intention to give gifts this year on Children’s Day can be attributed, among other factors, to the greater circulation of people compared to the two previous years, as well as the perception of improvement of the macroeconomic situation by the population, with the labor market in recovery.

“There is also at this moment a greater provision for celebrations, which were somewhat dammed during the most critical period of the pandemic. Children, in particular, were greatly impacted in this period, but there was, in general terms, a strengthening of relationships between parents and children, which explains this greater willingness to celebrate this very important date for national retail, which translates into gifts , tours, promotion of games, trips, thus heating up the consumption of goods and services”, reiterates.
