Industry Study
Priority Moments O2Local Retailers Struggling In Fight For Footfall

O2 have revealed research that shows that significant numbers of independent retailers fear for their future as the battle for footfall on the UK high street takes its toll.

Two thirds (65%) report that in the last 12 months, the number of customers passing through their shop doors has fallen or remained static, whilst 16% now fear they may go under during 2013 unless sales improve.

More than half (51%) of those we polled reported that generating consumer awareness is one of their biggest challenges, painting a picture of the difficulties independents face in getting customers through the door.

To help small British retailers overcome these challenges, O2 have announced that they are making Priority Moments for Independent Businesses available to all of the estimated quarter of a million* local independent retailers in Britain, currently at absolutely no cost, regardless of whether they are O2 customers or not.
