Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Samantha Dover, a leading analyst in the Retail sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
The ongoing investment into some of the UK’s largest travel hubs is changing the face of travel retail and presenting retailers with new opportunities to enter the market. Whilst food remains the primary reason to shop in a travel hub, the ongoing development of the sector will only help to convince consumers that travel hubs can be retail destinations in their own right which could in turn encourage more purchases in other categories. However, a significant challenge remains in pricing as this continues to be a major factor in why people avoid shopping in travel hubs.
