Employing over three million workers the retail industry is vast and vital to the UK economy. In 2019 the industry generated £394billion worth of retail sales – but what is retail?
The Oxford English Dictionary describes retail as ‘the sale of goods to the public for use or consumption, rather than for resale.’ It encompasses shops, department stores, supermarkets, market stalls, door-to-door salespeople, and internet retailers.
The retail industry consistently accounts for around 5% of the Gross Value Added to the UK economy. 14% of all UK investment made by large non-financial-sector firms is made by large retailers. Retailers purchase around £180bn worth of goods for resale, supporting £47bn of output from other sectors.
The companies holding the largest market share in the Clothing Retailing in the UK industry case studies include Primark Stores Limited and Next Group plc. FLS have managed deliveries in and out of both across Europe.
