A recent study by Kantar concluded that lockdown shopping habits are likely to continue even when social distancing becomes a thing of the past with 33% of households believing their volume of online purchases will increase.

In addition, eMarketer's report in May 2020 found that UK retail eCommerce sales will account for 27.5% of total retail sales this year, and that proportion will approach one-third by 2024.

IRX & eDX is here to provide the retail industry with knowledge, insight, inspiration and connections to ensure you are one step ahead of your competition and can thrive in the new digital world.
