Kristofer Tonström, President and CEO: With total sales of SEK 732 million in July, we delivered at the same level as last summer's strong sales. The most important explanation is that we offered an appreciated assortment and had well-adapted stock volumes in several relevant product categories. This at the same time as we had fewer visitors to our stores during the month compared with the corresponding period in 2020. Overall, our sales were unchanged in July compared to last year, while our online sales increased by 15%.
