Expert analysis from a specialist in the field

Written by Michael Oliver, a leading analyst in the Retail sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

Department stores in Italy are under assault from multiple directions at the moment, with intense competition from online generalists like Amazon, online pureplayers such as Zalando and YNAP, as well as store-based specialists with well-developed omnichannel business models. To survive, they need to focus on giving customers what these other rivals may not be so well able to and this means greater levels of individual customer service and making a visit to a department store a real experience.
