The global response to COVID-19 disrupted the retail sector, with many countries implementing brick-and-mortar lockdowns in an attempt to control the outbreak. The virus’s impact on the sector was not equal, however, and how some countries and businesses have emerged can offer lessons for the US and the rest of the world as they begin re- opening.

This second conversation between Anjee Solanki, national director of retail services at Colliers International, and Neil Saunders, managing director at GlobalData Retail, will look at what the pandemic has done to retail globally, and why there’s room for optimism for some countries and sectors, but also deep concerns for others.

Press play to listen.
