Published: Tue Jan 26 2016


Although home and garden specialist retailers remains a retailing channel which is attractive for the majority of Swiss consumers, demand for these retail outlets seems to have reached saturation point in Switzerland. The fierce competition and price war which prevail in the category have eroded sales as retailers have fought to increase customer footfall. Homewares and home furnishing stores posted positive, albeit marginal growth in 2015 amidst a very intense competitive environment. The contrasting performances of homewares and home furnishing stores on the one hand and home improvement and gardening stores on the other resulted in a marginal decline overall in home and garden specialist retailers during 2015.
