Residents’ economic situation: spend – Local independent food shops or markets

As restrictions are lifted, how much do you expect to spend on local independent food shops or markets compared to last year?


  • The research suggests that the picture of local independent food shops and markets is more encouraging; there is a net difference of four percentage points in those spending more over the coming year.
  • Households with no children, females and 45-64 year olds are the most likely to be spending more locally (although the highest proportion of respondents in these cohorts still indicated that they are planning to spend the same).
