Throughout 2022, nearly 4,000 stationary stores disappeared from the Polish market, informed 'Rzeczpospolita', referring to data from Dun & Bradstreet.

The main reasons include high inflation, a drastic increase in operating costs, and competition with online stores and large supermarket chains, wrote Money.pl citing the report.

The decline in the number of stores in Poland has been visible for years. In 2008, there were about 460,000 of them, now there are almost 90,000 fewer.

In recent months, however, the phenomenon has gained momentum. In the coming months the situation may be even worse, Dun & Bradstreet spokesperson Tomasz Starzyk estimated in an interview with Rzeczpospolita.
