Slovaks spend Sk2 billion a year in online shopping

On December 17, the Hospodárske Noviny economic daily wrote that in the two last months of this year alone, consumers in Slovakia are expected to spend some Sk600 million (nearly €18 million) on internet shopping, citing the latest findings of Slovakia's largest internet shop Hej.sk. The annual revenues of internet vendors registered in Slovakia are expected to reach Sk2 billion, which means that the sum should be around Sk500 million higher than the internet shops were expecting.

It is right now, in mid-December, that the virtual shops are experiencing the strongest wave of demand. When shopping on the internet, Slovaks are most interested in electronic goods - especially LCD television sets, DVD players, and GPS navigation devices. Perfume and watches are becoming popular as well. TASR
