Diane Brisebois, President & CEO of Retail Council of Canada, discussing back-to-school shopping expectations with Global News ReginaAugust 6, 2020
Diane Brisebois, President & CEO of Retail Council of Canada, said retailers are adapting to demand dictated by the pandemic.
“We do predict that what will be sold will be very different from what was sold last year at this time,” she said.
With fall plans still being finalized and some parents skeptical about sending their kids back into the physical buildings, Brisebois said apparel sales may not be what they’ve been in the past.
“That segment of the retail market is dependent on what the different jurisdictions will decide,” she noted.
