Slovaks stock up for Easter

Slovaks are reported to be stocking up in time for Easter, according to retailers.

Smaller retailers say that most of the extra trade is going to large retailers, although they have also seen increases in trade since the same period last year.

There have been increases in the sales of smoked meats, Easter candies, cake ingredients, alcohol, and coffee in the run-up to the Easter bank holidays. Many shops will be closed from Thursday evening until Tuesday morning.
