UK: Survey reveals top ten UK retail websites
Next is ranked 8th in the top ten UK retail websites.
Clothing retailers Next and Marks & Spencer (M&S) have been ranked among the UK's online retailers, according to research by retail analyst Verdict.
Customers were asked which online retailers they visit when considering making a purchase. The categories they could choose from ranged from clothing and footwear to food and grocery.
In addition, face to face interviews were also held with 2,948 adults throughout the UK by research firm Ipsos MORI.
Findings released yesterday (2 June) showed Next is the most visited clothing specialist and was ranked 8th in the list of top ten UK retail websites, followed by M&S ranked 9th. Department store chain John Lewis also made the top ten, appearing 6th on the list.
However fashion retailer Oasis dropped 36 places on the list compared to last year, the research company said.
"Online has the potential to offer a more level playing field than the high street, as there is potential for smaller retailers to compete with their larger rivals in a way that they are not able to do with physical stores," said Verdict's senior retail analyst, Matt Piner.
