Dublin, Sept. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ResearchAndMarkets.com published a new article on the retail industry "Global Retail Markets Continue to Struggle"

US consumer spending slowed again in August as extended unemployment benefits for Americans were cut, dashing hopes of an economic recovery from the pandemic. With less than 100 days left to Christmas, a number of major retailers announced they will close their doors for the Thanksgiving holidays, the biggest shopping days of the year. A number of major retailers have had to close their doors in countries across the world; according to the website Yelp, 60 percent of closed businesses in the USA won't be re-opening.

UK retail sales rose slightly in August for the fourth consecutive month, now surpassing their pre-pandemic level; nonetheless, August's increase was less than July's, showing a slowdown in the recovery. China's retail spending rose slightly in August, in their first positive report for 2020 so far.
