What's Inside

H&M and Inditex (owner of Zara), the world’s two biggest clothing specialist retailers, have announced plans to close a greater number of stores in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.

We discuss:  

  • The long-term trend in store numbers at these retailers, including estimates for closures in 2020.  
  • The factors driving the acceleration in H&M’s and Inditex’s store-closure plans. 
  • The implications for total store closures and the demand for physical store space. 
  • Whether any apparel retailers can resist the momentum toward e-commerce and retain a focus on brick-and-motar stores.
