How Are Retailers Are Performing Post COVID-19?

On Tuesday’s Morning Focus, Gavin met Duncan Graham, the new Managing Director of Ennis-based Retail Excellence.

A third of the retail workforce could end up jobless if sales figures don’t recover. Retail Excellence Ireland has found sales are down by about a third during the period of lockdown. Coffee shops, clothing outlets and footwear providers are the worst affected as they saw a drop of 75 per cent. However, the month of June saw similar figures to previous years, and the number of goods bought online has grown by 200 per cent.
