Close To A Fifth Of UK SME Retailers Feel They Will 'Struggle To Survive': Study

A new study by Hitachi Capital Business Finance has indicated an alarming deterioration in optimism in the UK's small business sector, particularly retail, where close to a fifth of those surveyed believe they will 'struggle to survive' the next three months.

Some 17% of retailers surveyed in Q3 said they would struggle to survive, which was up from 12% that answered likewise in Q2.
