Supermarkets fail to stock up

The Financial Gazette RETAIL shops in Zimbabwe have run dry as supermarkets are increasingly finding it difficult to stock up due to the escalating production constraints in the country’s manufacturing sector.

Most supermarkets surveyed by The Financial Gazette this week were completely empty, with refrigerators, that normally hum when packed with perishables or drinks, also empty and silent.
Some supermarkets in Harare’s central business district were only operating their butchery departments, but there were very few buyers because of the exhorbitant prices. A manger at a TM supermarket outlet said the industry had been affected by a combination of non-viable prices and the general unavailability of goods on the market.
