EUROPE A growing number of formerly ‘pure-play’ online retailers are opening physical stores as the growth in internet sales looks set to slow over the next few years, according to research by Colliers International.

By 2021, the growth in e-commerce sales is expected to decline from the current level of around 11 to 7 pct. Online retailers are increasingly using physical stores to bolster their sales and their brands. The new trend is being labelled ‘showrooming’ as the primary intention of these stores is not necessarily to generate sales through the tills but to reinforce customer loyalty – and spending - online. “The trend for ‘pure-plays’ to take on physical stores will undoubtedly accelerate as increased online competition and lower rates of sales growth requires them to find a competitive edge,” said Mark Charlton the head of forecasting and research at Colliers.
