The department stores market has risen 11.9% between 2013 and 2018 to reach £19.5bn in 2018, with the channel outperforming growth in overall non-food retail expenditure (+8.9% in the same period) and is forecast to account for 10.6% of non-food retail spend in 2018. Luxury department stores, such as Fortnum & Mason and Harrods have driven growth, benefitting from the weak pound following the Brexit vote which subsequently boosted in tourism.


– The performance of the luxury and midmarket players has been, and will remain, extremely polarised. Luxury players, Fortnum & Mason, Harrods and Selfridges experienced the highest sales growth between 2013 and 2018, and Marks & Spencer, Fenwick and Beales experienced the greatest decline, while Debenhams and House of Fraser’s sales have remained fairly flat.
– The online department stores channel has grown 88.3% over the past five years as the major players have invested heavily in improving their online platforms and fulfilment options, as footfall in stores has weakened.
– Over half of department store shoppers (60.8%) agreed that they visited department stores because of the food services on offer, and restaurants and cafes were the most used service of all facilities available. With retail sales flagging this is a prime opportunity for players to drive additional footfall while diversifying revenue streams and also enabling retailers to differentiate themselves in an increasingly competitive landscape.
