The changing behaviour series: Grocers prepare for an Easter feast as foot traffic picks up in the UK
As the UK begins to slowly come out from lockdown, we are seeing some return to nearly “normal” shopping behaviours. We predicted in a recent post in our Changing Behaviour series that Britons would be eager to return to some “real-world retail therapy,” and it seems we were correct. As the number of COVID cases has dropped dramatically, consumers are feeling safer and more comfortable going out to the high street shops.
