Before the UK entered lockdown, some 20% of all retail sales were carried out online, in the space of three months, that figure has risen to 30%.
While the stores are open, footfall to Britain's high streets remains down by more than 40% so the shift to digital looks set to continue. The market is adapting fast and even the smallest retailer needs to invest in a compelling digital proposition in order to compete in the new retail landscape.
The good news for smaller retailers is that they too are benefiting from another shift; a movement towards local and independent brands. So now is the ideal time to start investing in digital to capitalise on these major changes in consumer behaviour.
