Mintel Looks at Retail and Finance

Mintel Ireland has produced a number of interesting reports over the summer. These include an update on the Irish Food Retailing industry as well as a comparative examination of Retail Outlet Parks versus High Street Retailing. The opinion of Irish consumers on their financial security is analysed in the Property, Pensions and Investments report and in the Irish Leisure series, the Hotel industry comes under the microscope.

Interestingly, we are told that DIT staff and students are amongst the heaviest users of Mintel in Ireland. From April to November 2008, for example, 2260 users logged in, 3886 searches were carried out and 20,431 documents were viewed with 2,065 documents downloaded in full text.
Must be good stuff!
