Executive Summary

Feb 2019
PROSPECTS
Stable growth in apparel and footwear

Apparel and footwear specialist retailing was one of the most dynamic non-grocery channels in 2018. Due to the favourable economic climate and rising disposable incomes, Latvians were willing to spend more money on items such as clothing and footwear.

Shopping centres remain popular

As in many other countries across the globe, physical stores are increasingly being challenged by online retailers. However, for those buying shoes or a dress, for example, a good fit remains a hugely important factor.

Omni-channel strategy is the future

In today’s digital world it has become commonplace for retailers to adopt a multi-channel strategy. In addition to physical stores, most apparel and footwear retailers now also have an online sales platform and a mobile-optimised website and/or mobile app, as well as a presence on social media.
