London, 2017-Jan-26 — /EPR Retail News/ — The programme will build on the BRC’s recent industry report, ‘Retail 2020’, which predicts fewer but better jobs in the retail industry over the next decade. It will explore what changes in the way people shop will mean for businesses, staff and consumers, and analyse the impact of Brexit on the retail industry in the coming years.
Commenting on the film, Helen Dickinson OBE, the Chief Executive of the BRC said:
“Retail is woven into the fabric of our everyday lives. But the rate of change within the retail industry is set to quicken as the digital revolution advances, more property leases come up for renewal, labour costs go up and technology costs go down. As the voice of the British retail industry, we’re pleased to be partnering with ITN Productions to detail what the future of retail will look like.”
Simon Shelley, Head of Industry News at ITN Productions said:
“ITN Productions is delighted to be partnering with the British Retail Consortium to chart the transformational change that the retail industry is undergoing, exploring the shift in the way people shop, examining the effect this has on the vast number of people who work in the sector, and understanding the support UK retailers require to flourish. We’re excited to embark on this project and engage with key organisations and people dedicated to shaping the future of retail.”
