Steve Evers, chief executive of Intersport International Corp. (IIC), tells us that the majority of the national Intersport operations are doing well at this time, with an “excellent” sales development on a same-store basis across Europe after the reopening of the stores. With a drop of around 20 percent in retail sales during the first half of this year, the network perfomed better than expected despite the coronavirus-related lockdowns, he says, adding that he is “mildly positive” about the second half of the year provided that there will be no second wave of contaminations and restrictions.
