Consulting Services for Retail & Distribution

Reinventing the customer experience

The retail industry is undergoing a transformation. Challenged by enduring recessionary consumer attitudes, increasing competition and the continued trend away from brick-and-mortar shopping, retailers are embracing digital technologies, carving out new sales channels and integrating their supply chains to deliver superior value to the marketplace. In this time of reinvention, Deloitte’s Retail & Distribution team brings demonstrated experience in strategy, operations, finance, IT, and talent to help you move forward with confidence.

Consumer Spending Surveys

Deloitte’s Retail & Distribution practice conducts multiple consumer surveys throughout the year to measure consumer sentiment and spending behaviors. Results from the surveys have uncovered and reconfirmed important consumer trends that are critical to retailers for making sound business and planning decisions.
