Shopper Sentiment Survey January 2019
Published January 2019
Our latest Shopper Sentiment Survey suggested that expectations about the economy were little changed compared with the previous period. Anxiety over Brexit accelerated to its highest level since the referendum, while ‘lack of savings’ and ‘repayment of debts’ were also top concerns. Overall, the backdrop for consumer spending remains weak with almost 50% of consumers suggesting they are planning to spend less or cut back their spending in the next quarter.
