A new Report from the Centre for Retail Research discusses the financing and progress of Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) retailers in the UK and how it can be developed.

The Report, Diversity in Shopping: A Report on UK Black and Minority Ethnic Retail Businesses, provides accurate estimates for the first time of the size of the BME retail sector:

  • 68,000 BME retailers
  • almost 4,000 BME wholesalers
  • 373000 employees
  • combined turnover of £32.96 billion

Diversity in Shopping classifies BME retailers into four categories: traditionalist niche, conventional mainstream, niche player and progressive mainstream.
