The businessmen of Gamarra had great losses after Peru lost to Australia and failed to qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. The merchants estimated that they would recover up to 15,000 jobs in the coming months, as well as the growth of 3,500 textile workshops and the sale of about half a million polo shirts alluding to the Peruvian national team.

However, after the match that left Bicolor out of the world soccer competition, many merchandise could not be sold. This has led many entrepreneurs to offer their products at low costs.

“We have been left with a lot of merchandise, we have thrown away S/ 20, S/ 22, S/ 25 for the replica,” says the owner of a clothing store in Gamarra about the reduction in prices on Peruvian shirts.

Likewise, another merchant stressed that it was a hard blow for the commercial emporium because there was a lot of expectation generated. “It makes me nostalgic because it is not just one, but many micro-entrepreneurs who were starting to want to go out again to sell and everything was cut short,” a shopkeeper told TV Peru, “We made garments with advertisements alluding to the World Cup and we have kept everything because that already serves as an auction, “he added.

As it is recalled, the commercial emporium registered sales of up to S/ 1.5 million days before the defining meeting for Peru. “It is the first time in two years (due to the pandemic) that we see such a large audience. The only day that has been more similar to what was recorded in Russia 2018 It was yesterday,” Susana Saldaña, president of the Gamarra Perú Business Association, said at the time for La República.
