Retail Barometer shows 53% positive for future

More than half (53%) of independent cookshops and housewares retailers in Progressive Housewares’ Retail Barometer are positive about the future of independent cookshops and housewares retailers in the next three to five years.

While there were some dramatically different fortunes in 2020, for 54% of respondents overall business was better or the same in 2020, when compared to 2019.

“Our 16th Retail Barometer provides fascinating reading, with insights into a life changing and culture-shifting year – it is a ‘must read’ for everyone in the housewares industry,” states PH editor Jo Howard.
