Frustrated that these lockdowns are going to potentially last for the whole month of August which just leads to more market share for the big boys, higher NPLs etc etc. Supply chain’s are going to be stretched further, inventories are high for some, none for others, the ramp up will be nuts. Go for a walk through the city – those outlets (coffee shops, restaurants, clothes, beauty, fitness, hotels) are gone.
