EDITORIAL How Brexit uncertainty and sustainability concerns are affecting retail

In today’s InternetRetailing newsletter we’re reporting on the latest effects of continuing Brexit uncertainty, as new CBI figures suggest that retailers have stockpiled to unprecedented levels as peak trading and a potential - though now ruled out - no-deal Brexit combined. Dune Group says Brexit uncertainty played a part in its latest financial results, for the year to January 2019 – which is a useful reminder for just how long that uncertainty has now persisted. GlobalData also suggests that Brexit uncertainty will hit Hallowe’en spending. And, it points to the role of environmental concern in reigning in spending over what’s now become a significant date int he retail calendar.


Today we’re also reporting as DPD calls for urgent action to make it easier for carriers to invest in electric vehicles, while Andy Mulcahy of the Post-Economic Institute shares his analysis of Amazon can square ever faster delivery with pledge to zero carbon emissions. And we report as John Lewis trials its first plastic bag-free store.


Today’s guest comment comes from Rachel Smith of EKM, who considers the art of retail website evolution and how to stay fresh without confusing customers.
