Kristofer Tonström, CEO and President: Customer traffic to our stores recovered somewhat in September but is still lower than in 2020. Despite this, we achieved a total sales increase of six per cent during the month, whereas our online sales increased by 61 per cent. We continue to observe disruptions in the global logistics chain, but we have had a well-balanced inventory level during the period by working with things we can influence ourselves. This work continues as we are now preparing for the upcoming Christmas season.
