Consume This, CGS Monthly Newsletter: Volume 2, Issue 4

The Consumer Goods and Services Sector has been navigating unprecedented change for the past two years. From keeping up with digital retail trends to a pandemic that turned the world upside down, and consumer spending behaviour is continually shifting and evolving.

  • Conscious Consumerism: Famous Brands and Lexi’s Healthy Eatery
  • April Merchant Spend Analysis
  • Retail Footfall and Online Activity
