Online retail promising

ONLINE shopping deliveries in the UK are set to surge by more than a third over the next four years by 2018, new research has found.

Clothing and footwear are set to make up the bulk of the deliveries, according to a report compiled by Barclays.

The banking giant said there are set to be similar trends in Ireland.

Head of Retail & Wholesale for Barclays Richard Lowe, who was in Dublin this week, said that not only is the online market growing, it is also having to evolve more radically than before.
