Stating that they are examining which sectors increased their sales and which were decreasing due to the pandemic, Tombul said that they made preparations according to the results of the study. Tombul added that: “We have reached our best figures of all time. We started trading quarter billion Turkish Liras per month. We have made great progress in market share. In this period, we exceeded the figures we expected. Our sales volume plan for this year was to exceed 2 billion Turkish Liras.
