JLL UK Retail comments on latest Kantar Worldpanel figures


​In response to the latest Kantar Worldpanel figures on grocery market share, Tim Vallance, Head of UK Retail at JLL, commented: "Dave Lewis has to be congratulated for returning Tesco to growth for the first time in a year. The figures do suggest that we are on the road to a position of stalemate between the big four and the discount retailers. While Lidl and Aldi are reporting growth, this growth is not as strong as a year ago.  Figures from the British Retail Consortium show increased retail sales and a return of consumer confidence. As this continues to grow, we will start to see the supermarket war battleground shifting to technology, convenience and brand and moving away from the race to the bottom in terms of price cutting."
