  • ‘Quarter of UK retailers struggling to offer Black Friday deals’

    A quarter of UK retailers are struggling to offer Black Friday deals this year as they grapple with inflation and supply chain issues, a survey suggests.

    Almost half (47%) have invested in early advertising campaigns in an effort to avoid a run on stock and to play down expectations of big sales without harming their bottom line, the poll for payment solutions provider found.

    More than a third (36%) say they are concerned that items they want to buy this festive period will be out of stock and 28% are worried that the items they have already ordered online will not turn up in time for Christmas.

  • Majority of retailers will not slash prices in run-up to Xmas

    Bira, which works with more than 6,000 independent businesses, said the majority of members will not slash prices in the run-up to Christmas.

    Andrew Goodacre, chief executive of Bira, said: “The main reasons for them not wanting to take part in this is because they either don’t agree with this idea, there are higher prices, and there is also insufficient volume to make the large discounting work.

    “They also need to preserve their margins.This, coupled with many of our independents experiencing supply chain issues, this has proved to be a real challenge.”

    However, he added that Bira “remains concerned” about the rising costs and supply pressures making it difficult for independent retailers to meet demand ahead of the festive trading period.
