Welcome to the first ever edition of Global Retail Futures Journal from 100%. This journal is based on independent industry research and insights and focuses on challenges we know are important to both our customers and to the retail sector as a whole. From sustainability to technology, experiential shopping to the rising cost of living – each of these areas is tackled within the journal with some insights and feedback from the research we carried out at the start of the year.
We also have a regular ‘Expert Opinion’ slot and in this first issue we have spoken to Phil Day, MD of POPAI UK & Ireland. He gives us his views on the future of the high street, the affects of cost of living increases and the on-going challenges around sustainability.
