Swinging in the Retail New Year 2021

In our last post, pre-Christmas we spoke about the effect Covid having such a huge influence on our change in shopping habits to online shopping.

Getting into the swing of retail for 2021, we take a look at how online shopping has benefited us as we continue to encourage people to shop local and the importance of getting your business online if you haven’t already done so.

According to #ChampionGreen founder Marian O’Gorman and reported by RTE states that spending on Irish websites increased by 135% during 2020.

With figures showing that 39% of all online spending by Irish Revolut users on Green Friday – November 27 – went to Irish websites, while 61% went to international retailers. This marked a significant shift to buying Irish online, compared to last year, when just 28% of online spending went to domestic websites.

With the evidence of consumers moving their interest and spend to domestic channels we want to continue to shop local and this means shopping online local, supporting local business.
