The Joys of Shopping Centers
According to the US Department of Commerce foot traffic data, monthly retail visits were lower in Q1 2023 than in Q1 2022. That is not surprising in the least given the rise in interest rates and general cost of living pressures. Yet recent personal experience of visiting shopping centres in both Canada and the US would appear to indicate that crowds and volume of foot traffic are healthy. The ‘frustration in trying to find a parking spot at the weekend’ index shows no sign of abating!
Interest Rates, Inflation and Retail
In the krunchbox sponsored “2023 Retail Trends & Disruptions” report published in December 2022, inflation and recession were hot topics. When the surveys were being circulated we were in the early stages of what has become a long series of regular interest rate rises, which are still going on at the time of writing. It doesn’t take a Professor of Economics to observe that rising inflation coupled with increasing interest rates increase the cost of borrowing and make it harder for consumers to obtain credit. As a result, purchasing power declines which leads to lower retail spending.

In reality, the decision on which products get ranged, or stocked, in which stores is typically based on a combination of factors that vary depending on the retailer’s business strategy, customer demographics, and market dynamics.
The Power of Sell-Through
Sell-through is important because it measures the rate at which a company is selling its inventory, which is a key metric for assessing the performance of a business. It indicates the percentage of inventory that has been sold within a given period of time, usually expressed in terms of weeks, months, or quarters.
