More than one in five retail stores will close by 2018; so forecasts the latest report by the Centre for Retail Research. As 2018 is only 5 years away, retailers really need to act NOW to make certain they don’t become part of this grim statistic.
There’s no doubting that trade is already tough out on the High Street, so all retailers need to be making full use of every single potential sales channel available to them. Interestingly, that same report by the Centre for Retail Research predicts that online custom will almost double its market share in the equivalent period - from 12.7% in 2012 to 21.5% in 2018. Surely, therefore, those retailers with NO online/mail order presence, NO home delivery service and NO alternative ways of reaching consumers will be most at risk of failure?
