Description

"COVID-19 has brought a fresh set of challenges to a sector already under pressure. Like the last recession, the outbreak will only accelerate the winds of change in the sector, with greater online demand and more localised shopping. Non-food retailers will need to weather a significant storm in the short term and the reality is, even with the Government's financial packages, not all will make it through. Indeed the grocery sector, which is experiencing record demand, is seeing significant financial strain as stores have had to be invested in to ensure trade is safe in the new norm.”
Armando Falcao, Retail Analyst, 14th May 2020
