Clothing Retailing - Spain - October 2013

The focus of this report is clothing specialists, because these are the dominant players in the sector. In this report we provide total consumer spending data for clothing, which includes expenditure through all channels. And we include Mintel’s Channels of Distribution estimates for Spain, which indicate how this spending is distributed by retail sector.

Our exclusive consumer research spanned Spain, where we asked consumers which retailers they had bought clothing from in the past year, and whether this was online or offline, and how important certain attributes are to them when shopping for clothes.
