UK Town Centres 2017-2022

Summary

The digitisation of services including banks, estate agents and travel agents has led to closures in town centres and consumers reducing the frequency of visits - impacting retailers. This trend is set to continue as consumers take advantage of convenient online services. Despite ongoing negative press and decline in spend forecast, the town centres market is set to rise by £5.3bn (4.9%) over the next five years, accounting for 30.5% of all retail spend. As the largest contributing channel, the town centres market is twice the size of the online channel, demonstrating that although the physical share of retail spend is declining, stores remain an essential function of the retail landscape.

The sector mix within town centres is shifting away from clothing & footwear as sales move online, and towards convenience goods, primarily driven by food & grocery as shoppers purchase little and often. Food & grocery will be the driving force behind market growth, as consumers choose to do their top up shops in convenient town centre locations and inflationary prices drive spends on the sector. Food & grocery will be the fastest-growing sector, with spend anticipated to rise 19.9%, accounting for 42.7% of town centres sales, up from 37.3% in 2017.

With food & grocery accounting for the highest proportion of town centre spend, it is not surprising that Tesco and Sainsbury's have the largest share of the market, set to further rise this year. Furthermore, Aldi and Lidl are two of the fastest-growing retailers in the town centres market, with rapid expansion fuelling their sales in the channel as well as benefiting from shoppers trading down following a squeeze on household budgets.

Marks & Spencer, Next, New Look and Debenhams have all reported disappointing sales this year, and although some of these retailers are attempting to capitalise on the shift from retail to leisure by repurposing retail space, this is likely to be implemented in larger stores in retail parks and supermalls, leaving town centre stores more outdated.

Although 97.3% of consumers have visited a town centre in the past 12 months, the overall preferred shopping channel is now online. Shoppers value convenience and variety in products and retailers, which can be easily found online but is often lacking in tertiary town centres. 77.2% of town centre visitors agree that they would visit more often if they had a wider choice of retailers and 73.0% say they would shop more at a town centre if it was a more appealing environment to shop in.

Scope

- Though the town centres channel is forecast to grow by 4.9% over the next five years, the rate of growth will be lower than growth in total physical retail, as spend in retail parks and supermalls continues to rise at a faster pace.
- As shoppers choose to shop at more appealing physical locations such as supermalls and the online channel continues to satisfy shoppers’ rising expectations for product choice, experience and convenience, non-food spend will continue to decline in town centres with clothing & footwear share of the channel forecast to fall by 2.8 percentage points by 2022.
- Food & grocery and health & beauty will experience the fastest growth in town centres, growing by 19.9% and 16.6% respectively, with the former being driven by growth in convenience and rising inflation, and the latter being driven by the overall growth in the health & beauty sector - it is set to be the fastest-growing retail sector out to 2022.
