Confidence rise among restaurant-goers

Consumers now feel safer going to restaurants, hotels and attending in-person events, according to a new survey from Deloitte.outdoor
The company's  monthly 'Consumer Tracker' survey tracks Irish consumers' attitudes towards personal wellbeing, financial concerns, travel and hospitality, transport and retail.
The most recent data was gathered between 24 and 30 June.
It shows that consumers' financial concerns remain stable, with no change in the number of those concerned about making upcoming payments.
There was a 2% decrease in those concerned about losing their job.
The data shows that consumers continue to feel safer across the board, with notable increases in those feeling safe engaging in person-to-person services (up 3%); attending in-person events (up 5%); going to a restaurant (up 8%); and staying in a hotel (up 8%).


Concerns around returning to the workplace continue to lessen, with a decrease of 4% on the previous wave of research.
Consumer confidence in visiting physical stores has increased by 5% on the previous wave of research.
Consumers’ intended shopping channel has remained stable, with 'in-store’ remaining the preference across multiple categories, including clothing and footwear, electronics, restaurants and groceries.
However, despite the widespread reopening of physical stores that occurred shortly before the survey was conducted, there was no decrease recorded in the number of those who said they would prefer to shop online.
The latest survey observed increases in spending intent across multiple categories.
