BRC: Dr Liliana Danila, Economist and James Hardiman, Analyst
We are back with our quarterly insights webinar featuring our Insight & Analytics experts, Dr Liliana Danila, Economist, and James Hardiman, Analyst. They will be providing you with a detailed analysis of how retail performed during the Golden Quarter of 2020. With both Black Friday and the pre-Christmas weeks impacted by different Covid-related restrictions. As the quarter encompassed the key trading period of the industry, which sales categories benefitted or lost out the most? Also, what does the acceleration of online shopping adoption mean for physical shops?
This will be framed within the wider economic context. The team will present forecasts of retail sales and prices for the year. Against the backdrop of a potential rise in unemployment, will pent-up demand be released or will heightened uncertainty be an incentive for higher saving? Find out by tuning in!
