Retail on the high street is suffering and with a record number of stores closing, consumers buying habits have shifted online.

People are going out less so they are spending more time online browsing and shopping. In the last six months, e-commerce has grown significantly with 85,000 businesses launching an online store, in effect pushing the sector forward five years.

This trend has also been seen in our own company. IRP Commerce has been transforming the online fortunes of some of Ireland's most successful retailers, manufacturers and distributors for 20 years and in particular over the last six months. Overall growth rate during this period has been 80% compared to the same period in 2019. This success for our clients has seen investment in staff to scale and meet shopper demand.
