The Retail sector has been hit hard by COVID-19. With stores closed and a forced pivot to online-only sales, brands have had to react fast and shifting to new consumer needs and expectations. 

Many consumers have supported the shift, and embraced online purchasing. However, financial uncertainty means  others are holding back. So where does this leave the fashion industry going forward? 

As stores in the UK begin reopening with social distancing measures in place, both retailers and consumers are adjusting to a new normal. 

In this webinar, Attest’s Stephanie Hartley and Chrissy from The Big Thinks share insights from a two-part piece of research carried out in partnership, uncovering opportunities for retail in this new landscape alongside a possible new role for the store.

Part 1 of the research was launched back in April at the height of lockdown, and part 2 will be launched at the end of June. This will give us a snapshot of consumer sentiments towards style, shopping and shoes now that they have access to the shops once more. 

You will learn:

  • What has changed in consumer buying habits post-lockdown lift 
  • Key opportunities your brand can capitalise on to drive sales post-COVID
  • Sentiments from shoppers on heading in-store with social distancing measures in place, and what this may mean long-term. 

Grab your [shopping] bags and take a walk through the high street with us to re-fuel your retail strategy.
