GRAEME CODRINGTON:  "The retail industry is really going to be impacted by technology over the next few years. The economic downturn has meant that what we call here in the UK, high street stores, your big shopping districts have really been hit.  And we’ve been able to blame the recession for this.  But I don’t think in a few years time that it’s going to recover because what people have done during the downturn has become a lot more confident and comfortable with online shopping."
