Industry Challenges

The retail sector has been facing significant challenges due to changes in consumer behaviour, spending habits and competition from industry disruptors. With the industry meeting difficulties including high levels of competition from online and overseas retailers, changes in consumer demand, impacts of economic conditions including debt levels and reduction in credit card use, business operators can find it hard to remain profitable.

Delivering on consumer expectations is becoming increasingly complex with customers more informed and discerning than ever before, researching purchase decisions and using review platforms and online media platforms to make informed choices.
