Shopping Locations - UK - June 2015

This report aims to clarify what is happening to our retail locations in the face of competition from online retailing. It is not enough to say that online retailing grew by 13% in 2014 to 11.3% of all retail sales and it is therefore gaining share of retail sales because over half of all online sales are through the websites of store-based retailers.

This report looks at the following areas:

  • Consumers in good shape
  • The changing face of retailing
  • Location usage
