“Clothing retailing is changing. Consumers are becoming more demanding and too many well established retailers have failed to respond adequately. New dynamic retailers are developing to take their place – some online only, but others combining online and stores. Clothing retailers of the future will have to be much more responsive to fashion trends because the main impact of the growth in online has been to increase competition and make it easier for new dynamic retailers to enter the market and make their mark.”
– Richard Perks, Director of Retail Research
