"Perfectly happy?" Difficult Christmas for retailers & consumers

"Perfectly happy?" Difficult Christmas for retailers & consumers

Tuesday, December 13, 2022, 6:00 p.m.

Will the Christ Child put more than just the high energy bill under the tree this year? How much can and do consumers still want to afford, given high inflation and tight budgets? And if they do store, do they do it online? Or are we now drawn to the shopping malls after the years of the pandemic? Shortly before Christmas, we will examine the topic of retail and consumption from all angles, from sales management to the financial market.
