Supermarket Shopping: It’s All About the Right Place, Right Time, Right Channel

93% of UK households have internet access and 83% of people own a smartphone – yet online grocery retail makes up only 6.7% of total grocery sales. People continue to shop in physical stores and Mintel predicts that online grocery shopping will only make up 10% of total sales come 2022. We asked why? With a nationally representative sample of 1000 shoppers we explored the reasons for continuing to visit large supermarkets in the age of convenience and the importance of our digital screens in those shopping trips.

#PrideMatters

On the 7th July, Pride in London will see 40,000+ people parade through central London - no small feat to plan, organise and deliver, I’m sure you’ll agree. I've had the pleasure of attending Pride for the past few years, both as a participant and a spectator, and it's one of best days of the year. The whole of London feels energetic, colourful and alive and it can’t help but bring a smile to my face.  It's a celebration, but it's also a protest, a stand, a demonstration. It's many different things to many different people, but the one thing that it does universally is provide a platform for anyone to tell their story. The theme of this year’s event is, by its design, all inclusive: #PrideMatters.
