'Get online' shops told

RETAILERS have been urged to get online "professionally and quickly" following the latest slump in sales figures.

Retail Excellence Ireland said it is vital that firms immediately capitalise on the benefits of doing business online.

"Our e-commerce members are all reporting like-for-like growth for January and February, while the bricks and mortar stores are still suffering decline," said chairman David Fitzsimons.
