Department Store Retailing - France - January 2009

This report series covers the six leading economies of Western Europe plus Ireland. We have produced Major Profiles of 12 top department store retailers in Europe. We have also included smaller profiles (13 in total) on other significant players, some of which operate in European markets not covered by this report.

The data in its entirety is contained in the single copy seven-country report. Single country reports are available for the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy.

The department store sector is facing major challenges:

  • Continued competition from high street specialists and the non-food offer of grocers.

  • Economic issues are undermining consumer confidence and many consumers are expected to cut back on their spending or trade down.

  • Department stores, with their focus on discretionary items, face difficult times.
