To carry out this survey, 1009 French people were interviewed between January 24 and 25, 2024.

Respondents (53%) believe their purchasing power will decline in 2024.

• More promotions
• Loyalty programs
• Destocking products
• First-price products
• More private labels (brand name)
• More bulk products
• More sales periods and private sales
• More family-size products, to build up stock

Apart from the financial aspect, respondents would like to have:
• Less waiting at the checkout
• Fewer out-of-stock products on the shelves
• The opportunity to test products before buying them
• Stores that are more respectful of the environment
• Cleaner spaces
• More available sales advisors
• Tidier stores
• Extended opening hours
• More parking spaces
• Better atmosphere in stores (lighting, temperature, music, etc.)
• More links between stores and e-commerce (drive, click and collect…)
