Opportunities present themselves for online merchants

“As ‘back to school’ has a clear cut-off date – when children often need new shoes to replace the ones they haven’t tried on for six weeks – it may be that offering next-day click and collect could prove to be a key differentiator for retailers.

We see something similar in the week leading up to Christmas Day, where those offering it generally generate far higher sales growth than those who don’t.”
