Three-in-four (76%) survey respondents believe they will revert to the same level of in-person shopping that they engaged in before the pandemic by the autumn, according to research by property company Landsec. The survey of 1,319 UK adults was conducted between 17 and 18 March.
Over half (55%) of the public are most excited about an in-person shopping trip this April. This is alongside socialising and leisure activities, such as sports and music events.
Bruce Findlay, managing director of Retail for Landsec, said: “As the reopening of the economy draws nearer, it’s clear that people want to get out and about again. Many attitudes have certainly changed as a result of the pandemic but the human desire to come together has not. There is still a strong appetite for physical shopping and in-store experiences which cannot be replicated online. The right stores in the right locations that reconnect our communities will thrive.”
