Brick-and-mortar retail turnover is expected to increase nominally by +2.1% across the EU-28 in 2018. The winners are Romania (+7.5%), Estonia (+6.8%) and the Czech Republic (+6.5%). Gains are also anticipated for the other EU-28, although the United Kingdom barely holds steady at +0.1%. These are some of the many results from our recent European retail study, which evaluates various retail trends and features a 2018 prognosis.
