    Key takings:
    – Retail sector likely to witness a V-shaped recovery in sales & profitability after the lock-down instead of U-shaped recovery. This is a possibility because immediately after lock-down consumers would desire to restock their food supplies with fresh items, and consumer behavior likely to be back to normal immediately after the lock-down.
    – Food retailers might suffer significant losses especially those with size-able inventories of perishable commodities.
    – Clothing industry might not face the cost of depreciation of inventories, but will face a grave challenge of selling-off summer clothing as winter in just around the corner.
