The Perfect Storm
Reflections on Q1 2022 retail earnings — and what lies ahead

Recording available

Our experts reviewed the first quarter retail earnings and looked at what lies ahead for the rest of the year.

Even as supply chain disruptions continue to weigh on retailers, the impact of soaring inflation is taking a toll on consumers’ willingness to buy, much less to pay top dollar.

Shoppers feeling the pinch are looking for value and starting to trim their discretionary spending.

During this webinar, we reviewed and analyzed what signals and warnings the retail market is sending as major retailers deliver Q1 earnings results, consumer sentiment declines, and the macroeconomic environment becomes more challenging.
