Supermarkets - UK - November 2017
“The supermarket sector is expected to return to growth for the first time in four years in 2017. However it is still a sector fighting against the grain of current shopping habits. Consumers continue to move to more fluid and frequent habits and the discounters continue to present a considerable thorn in the side of the leading players. There are green shoots, but the largest stores are still swimming against the tide of changing shopping habits.”
