With rising fuel and food prices, the French are forced to make choices in their consumption. Thus, they spend less on their leisure.

With inflation, the French are trying to save money. Thus, clothing sales have fallen by 10.3% since January 2022 compared to 2019. Footwear sales have fallen by 6%. “I don’t renew, I look at what I have in my wardrobe”indicates a woman. “It’s been a long time since I bought clothes, for example, and hobbies too, we’re a little careful”says another.

Rising food and fuel prices are forcing the French to go to restaurants or the cinema less. Sales in the health and beauty sector also fell by 5%. In supermarkets, entry-level products sold more in the first quarter, with an increase of 8%. The more affordable second-hand and second-hand market should grow by 15% to 20% per year for the next five years.
