Report Summary Outline

UK Retail Outlook Spring 2023

Retail faces multiple challenges in 2023, including the cost of living crisis and rising interest rates coupled with the normalisation of spending patterns as people revert to pre-Covid lifestyles. In particular, the core target demographic of many mainstream retailers, better-off 30-49s, is set to be hardest hit by a leap in mortgage interest payments. This report examines where the impact will be greatest and examines strategies retailers could take to answer this challenge.
