Branch organization for supermarkets and food service companies CBL expects that Dutch supermarkets' turnover will exceed 1 billion euros in the Christmas week. The organization calls this a new milestone, the Telegraaf reports.
CBL thinks that supermarkets in the Netherlands will be at their busiest on the Sunday and Monday before Christmas. Most of the fresh produce will be sold on Monday, December 24th.
A large number of supermarkets will also be open on Christmas itself - over 700 on Christmas Day and more than half of all supermarkets on Boxing Day.
