Pont-de-Vaux. The Cadobus store is badly hit by the crisis


With the duration of the health crisis and massive event cancellations, Sylvain Janins business, Cadobus, has lost a significant portion of its activity. “Since March 2020, conscription festivals have been canceled across the region. We have lost the traditional sale of conscription cockades, gibuses, table decorations and reception rooms. The Halloween party in early November is usually good for selling costumes and disguises, but neither has the health crisis let it unfold, ”explains Sylvain Janin.

A revenue loss of more than 40{7d3485657e94c2a51293ca186d4450b2f27c317aa7ee3509dac6c8bbf5461118}

The brand offers many items related to events. Card making, personalized printing on documents and fabrics, extra gifts, knick-knacks, games and toys usually make a substantial addition to activities, but the decline in visitor numbers in the store leads to a decline in sales.

Cadobus is also a drop-off and distribution point for parcels on behalf of the freight forwarder UPS.

Sylvain Janin does not see the future very well. He estimates his loss of sales at over 40{7d3485657e94c2a51293ca186d4450b2f27c317aa7ee3509dac6c8bbf5461118}. The help he received in 2020 was a real breath of fresh air, but not enough for him to calmly contemplate the businesss survival. With the ear of government announcements and the development of vaccinations, he watches with a hint of hope of a significant resumption of activity.

Cadobus has become an indispensable place for lovers of surprises and new ideas. The closure would mean a huge loss for Pont-de-Vaux and the region.
