Italy Beauty and Personal Care Retailing Market Report 2023

£ 1,095 (Excl.Tax)

Description

“The major chains of specialist beauty and personal care retailers, which are still primarily store-based businesses, have an opportunity to help their customers deal with the cost of living crisis by using discounts to build goodwill and increase loyalty which will bear fruit in the future. Faced at the same time with growing consumer demand for them to become more sustainable, these retailers also have an opportunity to encourage their customers to adopt more sustainable behaviours – which may also be rewarded with discounts or lower prices – and use this to drive footfall back into their stores, as part of a wider strategy of giving customers a compelling reason to shop in-store again, rather than online.”

– Michael Oliver, Senior Retail Analyst
