Crisis in Macaé 630 stores closed from January to May 2017

Merchants suffer from the crisis in Macaé and are forced to fire and close doors due to lack of movement.

The crisis in Macaé not only affected offshore companies, it also reached micro-enterprises and the self-employed in a kind of ripple effect. Commercial establishments in Macaé experience the unfortunate impacts due to the economic setback in the city, which do not seem to come to an end. According to the Union of Employees in the municipality, an impressive 630 have closed their doors in recent months, almost 6 stores every week! Amazing, isn't it?

The main trade routes in the city of Macaé are Avenidas Rui Barbosa and Avenida Teixeira de Gouveia, but even in these strategic points, entrepreneurs have had to extinguish their commercial points, because there is not enough sales volume and rents are becoming more and more expensive.

For anyone passing by these days, it really is a very sad scene to see, many stores closed or empty due to lack of movement. Even at the Aloha, Fashion and Elias Agostinho galleries, which concentrated a good part of the sidewalk's sales, they now experience a desolate scenario.

Naturally, this lack of movement in trade hurts your pocket a lot. Being forced to close due to capital retention, companies are being forced to fire, further increasing unemployment.

Mariáh Silva, who is the president of the Union of Employees and Commerce of Macaé, said that it is impossible to postpone how many businesses will close in 2017. If this crisis continues for much longer, more stores will be closed and so on.

Frederico Pessoa, who owns a beauty salon in the city, said that he had a monthly revenue of more than R$30.000,00, now that profit is 50% lower and that unfortunately, he will have to fire some of his employees to try to maintain the business and wait to see if this crisis passes.

According to CAGED, which is associated with the Ministry of Labor, in March Macaé eliminated 442 formal jobs in the commercial sector. In the service sector, 2.251 professionals were laid off and 1.370 returned with salaries well below the salary ceiling.

If we make a comparison between the first quarter of 2015 and March 2017, this calculation shows that around 59.211 employees were fired in the city.

The situation is worrying, let's wait for the development of the next months, because our neighbor São João da Barra is already taking matters into its own hands and has its Porto do Açú in full swing, waiting for the logistical movements in the city.
