Executive Summary

The number of consumers in the UK who shop regularly at department stores has fallen by nearly six million in the five years to 2014. The closure of TJ Hughes stores, poor general merchandise performance from M&S and fluctuating sales from Debenhams and House of Fraser have contributed to the decline.

Synopsis

Just under one quarter of all department store shoppers use the channel for homewares. However, with exceptional improvement in the housing market throughout the course of 2014, we do expect shopper levels to revive, particularly since the likes of John Lewis have heavily invested in the sector.

Beales has the lowest score for cross-sector shopping. Much of its store portfolio is in need of refurbishment, while many departments have a lack of choice with often incoherent ranges, which causes frustration and a lack of willingness to browse the full store.

M&S is ranked it as the most shopped department store in 2014, followed by Debenhams and John Lewis. The retailer's ubiquitous offer and broad price architecture allow it to reach a very large audience, aided by the size of its store portfolio. However, despite maintaining its leading position, the percentage of shoppers has fallen.
