At our 5th Scottish Retail and Leisure Trends Summit in partnership with the University of Stirling we interviewed our panel of experts who shared with us their opinions on the current and future state of retail in Scotland, as well as sharing valuable insights on what challenges they foresaw for the Scottish market.
In the videos below, we asked Professor Leigh Sparks (Professor of Retail Studies and Deputy Principal at the University of Stirling), Jane Bradley (Correspondent at The Scotsman), Graham Seaton (Property Asset Manager at Ann Summers), Caitriona McAuley (Depute Chair at the Scottish Local Authority Economic Development) and Jim Harper (Regional Business Manager at The Scottish Midland Co-operative) to answer the questions below:
- What does LDC’s latest report tell you about the state of the Scottish market?
- How does retail in Scotland differ to the rest of the UK, if at all?
- What do you think are the biggest challenges in Retail and Leisure in Scotland for the year ahead?
