How is coronavirus impacting the retail industry?

Article | March 19, 2020

Primark is one of the latest retailers to announce the temporary closure of some of its stores, in a bid to help stop the spread of coronavirus. It has closed outlets in Italy, France, Spain, and Austria (where 30% of its revenue is generated), while its UK and Northern Ireland stores at the time of publication at least remain (perhaps controversially) open. Primark is certainly not the only one to take this kind of action. Global retailers including Glossier, Nike, Urban Outfitters, and Patagonia have all indefinitely shut their stores, purely to help prevent further outbreak. In the majority of cases, employees are being paid for lost shifts. At the same time, retailers have also updated working policies to help ease the strain on staff. Starbucks, for example, has announced that it is implementing ‘catastrophe pay’ to US employees, meaning that it will now pay staff for up to 14 days if they have been diagnosed or in close contact with someone who has coronavirus.

Price will eventually cease to be the most important part of the value equation, with quality and sustainability becoming more critical factors in the customer decision making process.

In the retail industry, holiday shopping accounts for about 20 percent of annual sales. In the final few weeks of the year, it’s easy for retailers to feel overwhelmed with not only an influx of shoppers but the added pressure of needing to tie up loose ends before January 1st. These weeks can make or break the year and creating a positive customer experience that’s memorable is essential for continued success. For this reason, retailers need to strive for 100 percent Brand Uptime in order to meet customer expectations, maximize sales and revenue, and deliver a positive customer experience. The preparation must have an omnichannel focus. It starts with digital realms such as ensuring your website can handle the influx of visitors in the weeks leading up to the new year as well as the months following.
