"Scooter" grew at high rates — for 30% monthly — even before introduction of the mode of self-isolation in Moscow and St. Petersburg. Purchase completely corresponds to our strategy — to help people to close all requirements connected with food. "Scooter" became service of prime necessity — and the command does everything that people could order and receive quickly the necessary goods without leaving the house. At the same time we are sure that the habit to order products with fast home delivery will remain with us and after removal of all restrictions,
