‘Retail hasn’t been left behind by the government – it’s evolving’

Dickinson, Helen 2019

On the back of the government’s latest economic update, I’ve read some people saying that retail has gotten used to being ignored by set pieces from chancellors, past and present.

However, as I speak with executives across the industry, few have been critical of Rishi Sunak’s most recent economic package.

The chancellor’s economic update may have saved its juiciest bits for hospitality – an industry hit harder than our own – but retailers cannot deny they have benefited from government support in the months gone by and continue to do so.
