A third of UK shoppers have stopped buying goods and services from EU since Brexit: A survey of UK consumers has revealed that a little over a third of UK shoppers (34%) have stopped buying goods and services from the EU since the UK severed ties with the EU at the end of last year.
The survey by Specialist technology PR and marketing agency Eskenzi PR & Marketing, questioned 1,000 UK adults in early February 2021.
The survey also asked respondents for their reasons behind no longer buying goods and services from the EU, with a just under a quarter of those aged 16-24 (24%) saying they were deterred due to increased costs, while 26% said that increased delays had put them off.
The survey results also found that almost double the amount of men to women said they would no longer buy EU goods due to 'ideological reasons'.
Yvonne Eskenzi, co-founder, and director at Eskenzi PR. “It is evident to see that UK consumers are being put off buying goods from the EU due to the various complications Brexit has created. We can only hope that this is a temporary measure. Post-Brexit Britain is still in its embryonic stage, and the true nature of our new relationship will have to be measured across the course of the following months – and indeed, years.”
