As the strike against the pension reform continues Saturday, including transport this weekend, and another day of mobilization is scheduled for Tuesday, December 10, the consequences of the movement begin to be felt. At Intermarché, the days of December 5th and 6th have already had an impact, says the president Thierry Cotillard.

"We have the first results of the first two days and these are numbers in negative," says Thierry Cotillard, who explains that the strike blocks the trade of the supermarket sign. He adds: "the worry is about our ability to supply outlets over the medium-long term, so it's a delicate situation." But Thierry Cotillard wants to be reassuring: "we try with our members to approach it with the most serenity possible".
To ensure its supply, Intermarché relies on its own fleet. "The question is more to know if we will be able to have access to all points of sale", explains the president. And to add: "we asked our members to anticipate and store a little on milk and water pallets so that we can meet the demand of our customers".
