Look inside the May 2015 edition of our regular Juice Creative Retail Report and you’ll find 75 pages of exclusive photos and insight exploring the latest retail trends. In the course of our research this month, we looked at 14 distinct categories, from Bakery to Dairy, Healthcare to Stationery. We also explored the seasonal aisles, and made sure we recorded anything else that captured our interest.
This latest retail report also includes our regular commentary column. This month, we’re revisiting the Great Supermarket Price War:
Nearly halfway into 2015, the focus on lower pricing looks set to stay as the multiples continue to compete with the discounters. This is no easy task.

The column goes on to analyse the latest price war strategies of the UK’s big grocery retailers, and offers speculation about what’s to come in the ongoing battle for retail supremacy.
