In this episode, we are talking about the retail sector, where the Covid-19 crisis has brought forward the inevitable change. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor is caught up with George MacDonald, executive editor at Retail Week.
MacDonald discusses the survival of the fittest retailers and the ways in which consumers now interact with retail outlets. He also talks about the future of the high street and out-of town-superstores, retail parks, and shopping malls. The future of the corner shops is possibly the most interesting outcome of the retail space transformation as individually-owned shops may be little changed, depending on their ability to respond to local demand.
