Retailers saw the World Cup business to be positive, but not to the level that they have seen since the middle of June, the start of the World Cup games, fueled by the success of the national team, making history with each game.

Special pricing and offers of savings have enticed customers.

“The great performance of La Sel has meant more and more people are looking to buy bigger TV’s to watch the game,” said Llobet.

“If there is a win today (Saturday against the Netherlands) it could mean something amazing, meaning an expectation of increases (of sales) in all sectors,” in the opinion of Llobet.
