Bumpy ride predicted for retailers in 2011
May '11
For the much harassed UK retail sector during the past two years of recession, this would be the unkindest cut. Present state of competition has kept retailers on their toes. Adding to their woes, current trends indicate a forthcoming retail recession

UK's retail industry is going through a tough phase, predicting a bumpy ride for retailers during 2011 and 2012. A recent research report released by Nielsen states that the larger and mature markets of UK and US saw a year-on-year decline, adding more pressure to a already shrinking consumer confidence.

Earlier consumers were excited when they got branded items for cheap prices. Now, apart from the price factor, they are also concerned about the quality aspects, and the shopping experience. They now tend to choose quality over quantity. This change in the shopping attitudes will affect stores running mainly on discounts throughout the year.

Industry analysts predict this situation is likely to persist for a couple years. With apprehensions that, growth is likely to be difficult, retailers are seeking diversifying options. Womenswear retailers are looking for options in related sectors of health, and beauty. The forthcoming Olympics in London in 2012 have raised rosy hopes for retailers.
