PODCAST: Home delivery: what is driving growth?

Home delivery in independent convenience retail boomed during the Covid-19 lockdowns. Newtrade Insight set out to explore if that trend has continued or slowed down.

Newtrade Insight recently published a report into home delivery in independent convenience retail, looking at the growth of the sector since the nationwide UK-lockdowns ended in June 2021.

Including a survey of more than 150 retailers who offer home delivery and interviews with industry experts, the report explored not only the growth of home delivery, but also what retailers need to do to scale their offerings.

As part of a new series of podcasts on the most pressing trends in the convenience retail sector, editor of Newtrade Insight Maximilian Schwerdtfeger and features editor of RN and Retail Express Charles Whitting sat down to discuss the report and home delivery.

The podcast includes interviews with retailers who have successfully launched home delivery offerings and Chris Noice, communications director at the Association of Convenience Stores (ACS).
