More Italians shopping at discount stores as crisis deepens


Rome, April 23 - As more and more Italians grapple
with the ongoing economic crisis, food shopping habits are
changing, according to national statistics agency Istat.
Between 2007 and 2013 "the share of families which has made
purchases at hard discount stores has almost doubled, reaching
more than 21% in 2011," Enrico Giovannini, the president of the
statistics agency, said Tuesday.
The trend is unlikely to change much even if incomes were
to increase.
"Even if we had the opportunity to increase families'
incomes, a part of this increase would go to savings - for those
who can afford it," Giovannini said, pointing out that there
would be little left for more consumption.
