Freezer sales rocket amid coronavirus stockpiling
Sales of freezers have spiked amid growing concern over the coronavirus, according to figures from online appliance firm AO.com. Freezer sales jumped 200% year-on-year last week, and Wednesday was its third highest sales day ever, AO.com said. Department store chain John Lewis said it had seen "a substantial uplift in freezer sales". Sales of chest freezers and under-the-counter freezers are up, a trend which normally happens in the run-up to Christmas as people stock up, the AO.com spokesperson added. The firm, which has been trading since the year 2000, had its third highest freezer sales last week, behind pre-Christmas Black Friday sales in 2018 and 2019.
