Retail and Consumer

Hunter & Chase understands competition for consumer spending is greater than ever. The extremely competitive retail environment is creating pricing pressures that require strict cost and inventory control. Retail organisations must remain focused on adding value in everything they do — critical for attracting today’s consumer.

Further most retail and consumer goods companies had to reacted swiftly to address the changes brought about the domination of the internet and new consumer spending habits, as online retailing competes head on with the high street. In addition, retail and consumer companies must fully consider the risks and rewards of sourcing from and investing in the emerging markets such as China and the Far East and Eastern Europe.

Thus shifting buying patterns, emerging product trends and the steady growth of specialty concepts are constantly redefining the retail landscape.
