Huboo in the News 23/02

One of the UK’s leading platform for high growth and scale-up businesses Business Leader magazine has given space to two stories that put Huboo in the spotlight this week. It’s no secret that high street only retailers are facing unprecedented challenges to remain trading, and Business Leader’s Retail Report focuses on the cultural significance of the high street in 2021. 

High Street challenges

Our CEO Martin Bysh commented, high street retailers are facing the same three big challenges they did last year – the inability to open their shops, scared consumers staying away and a growth in understanding about how eCommerce works and the benefits it offers. All these factors result in far less purchasing on the high street.” 

Of course, there is the hope that traditional trading methods will survive but is it recoverable, and even so, should it be?  

“The high street has always depended on a large cohort of consumers shopping in stores; the pandemic has changed this and has resulted in consumers who had never shopped online before doing so and realising the convenience and benefits online brings, so it’s unlikely that all ‘in store’ shoppers will return.”
