Calling Time in the Third Quarter?
Autumn rent quarter day is upon us, bringing with it another issue for retailers to juggle, amongst the falling footfall, drop in consumer confidence, and inflationary cost pressures. June’s previous rent day contributed to the collapse of Habitat UK, Homeform, Jane Norman and TJ Hughes.
In our “Calling Time in the Third Quarter” retail briefing note (attached), we highlight some of the key areas for concern and warning signs, as well as providing thoughts as to how retailers can best navigate the stormy waters of the UK economy.
I hope that you will find this interesting and relevant. Please do not hesitate to give me or any of our retail specialists a call to discuss further.
