“It is no secret that many food shops are struggling to maintain their footing.”
We have worked hard to get the right mix of food and fashion into our shops and we are thrilled to have such a great range of foodies in our stores,” he said.
The survey of over 1,000 food retailers, grocery chains and food processors found that many shops would have to increase their online presence, adding to the challenge of running a store without having customers.
While some of the biggest names in food, such as Marks & Spencer, Tesco, Lidl, Coles and Sainsbury’s, have been able to grow their online shop offerings, others are struggling with growing their online shops.”
I think many shops have been struggling for the past few years.
“Some of our biggest names like Marks & Spencers, Sainsburys, Lids, and Tesco are all struggling,” said Mr Crouch.
“But as these stores get more popular they will have an increased need for more online space.”
For example, I’m hoping to see a rise in Sainsbys online shop, with more people going there and buying products from the company.””
I also believe that more of our major brands are going to have to open more online, including brands like Lidys, Colgate, Cola and Lidu.
“The survey also revealed that online sales are expected to increase across the food retail industry, with the UK’s largest chain, Soho, set to overtake the country’s largest supermarket chain, Aldi, as the biggest online retailer.
