Romania’s biggest online retailer eMAG gas started selling protection masks and says that it has over 7 million masks in stock to address the demand from customers. The retailer claims that it charges no retail margin for the masks and the price for a box containing 50 items is RON 146.83 (EUR 30.2), resulting in a price per piece of under RON 3, according to Romania-Insider.com.
Each client can order only one such package as the demand is high and the company wants to prevent speculative acquisitions (big orders later to be sold at higher prices). The retailer also said that it will update the price every week based on the acquisition prices of masks.
“Starting today, the set of simple three-fold masks is available at eMAG and can be delivered quickly, in any locality. We want every Romanian to have access to basic protection measures, so we have decided to sell this product without profit. Without being specialized in this category of products, we have learned and adapted, on the go, so that we can meet a need that people have these days and that is aimed at public health,” said eMAG CEO Iulian Stanciu.
