The first Retail Experience Score 100 analyses 100 of the UK’s foremost omnichannel companies, reflecting a diverse range of the British high street’s sectors and industries. This extended, cross-sector insight is released ahead of one of the toughest years predicted for British commerce.
By the numbers
- 42% provide free 48-hour C&C, despite overwhelming demand from consumers
- 1 in 5 offers reliable stock check, proving it's still rare in the UK
- 10% give free standard delivery, despite heavy competition from pure-play ecommerce rivals
Once a customer experiences a better level of service, they expect it from everyone else – and the RES 100 shows those trailblazing retailers separating themselves from the pack.
