First paragraph: The Covid-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on all our lives. It has also highlighted the critical and varied role(s) played by retailing in both the economy and wider society.

Disruption has also been felt throughout the wider retail eco-system including actors in the supply chain and the real estate industry.
