Shore Capital’s Dr. Clive Black presents on Retail Trends at the Deloitte Retail Industry Breakfast held on Tuesday 27th January 2015.
Alongside Ian Geddes and Hugo Clark of Deloitte, Dr. Black provided an overview of the retail market outlook. The seminar covered highlights of 2014, a more in-depth look at the market by Dr. Black and then considered the outlook for 2015.
Dr. Black focussed on the role of the UK food insustry; his research looks at expectations for the supermarket trading model, how online shopping will impact supermarkets and the implications of promotions and price-wars in the sector. He concludes that the economic prospects for the UK are bright and that with store growth cut the medium-term outlook for UK supermarkets could be better in time, albeit different.
