Retail

Our Approach

Eight Advisory helps retail companies to rethink and implement their strategy to face market challenges and dynamics.

The retail industry encompasses diverse activities, such as out-of-home catering, specialty food and non-food speciality stores, mass merchandisers, and digital channels.

This sector has been significantly affected by recent crises, including the rise of digital, successive curfews, declining store traffic, supply chain adjustements, and more recently, inflationary pressures that have led to purchasing power disparities among consumers.

Key Trends

The retail industry is experiencing a rapid shift in consumer behavior, driven by digital and physical shopping habits, a growing interest in sustainability, and consumer price sensitivity in the face of inflation.
