Re-thinking the retail landscape

As lock-down eases in the UK, non-essential retail re-opens to a new reality.

Re-opening physical stores has seen innovation around digital to drive footfall, as brands encourage shoppers to make the trip to discover what they’ve been missing. Brands are also using this time to re-evaluate how they can make active change on diversity and inclusion. Primark re-opens its stores in England to high customer demand, Zara will close stores to combat its COVID-19 losses and Estèe Lauder unveils its new diversity and inclusion plan.
