The first half of 2020 saw 80% of the retail and leisure market close temporarily during a strict lockdown due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in the UK. Since then the market has grappled with huge changes including a myriad of changing restrictions, consumer fears around contracting the virus and ensuring staff are protected at work. 

Whilst it is still very easy days in regard to measuring the full impact of the pandemic, there are already huge structural changes taking place across GB's high streets, retail parks and shopping centres.

This analysis provides a critical first update on the trends seen so far, reflecting in detail on which corners of the market have been more resilient, and which are feeling the full force of prolonged periods with limited or no trading.
