POLL: Did 2019 meet your expectations?
As the retail industry collectively marches toward the end of 2019, it’s a good time to reflect on the year that brought us to this point – a year filled with cash rate cuts, voluntary appointments, and low consumer sentiment and confidence.
However, it isn’t all as bad as it seemed.
While many retailers did struggle, others saw strong results and even delivered novel retail concepts, such as Domino’s getting onboard with cashless stores, Bunnings Warehouse launching a YouTube series to reach millennial customers, and Seafolly’s magic mirrors.
Several retailers also delved further into retailer-to-retailer partnerships, utilising one another’s strengths to tap into different consumer segments, notably Coles and eBay, General Pants and The Iconic, and David Jones and BP.
So, we’re curious to hear: How has 2019 been for your business?
Did the past year deliver on expectations? Or did it not quite hit the mark? Vote in our last poll for the year below, and share your thoughts in the comments!
