And on prime of that, will income be sufficient to cowl your prices and nonetheless go away you with a stable revenue?
Subsequent, we’re taking a look at market developments. We wish to have a look at how gross sales, worth, and critiques are trending. Is it a seasonal product, like seaside towels?
