Is Retail Draining You? Time to Renew! James Dion, Retail Strategist
Experiential retailing has been around for a long time but it has reached new heights lately blurring the lines between residential/personal and retail, hospitality and retail, and physical and digital (some call it ‘category convergence’).
New concepts, an amalgam of traditional services, convenience and new options, are supposed to help traditional retailers compete with the rise of online shopping. Urban Outfitters, Bonobos, Warby Parker, Nordstrom, Restoration Hardware are just a few examples of retailers focusing on “experience/lifestyle retail” as you have not seen before.
As we always say, customers shop horizontally and the new experiences customers are having at these stores are raising the bar for everyone else. In this presentation you are going to learn what you need to do to meet consumers’ new experience expectations by coming on an exciting journey with us where we explore trends that you need to watch and embrace. Here is a taste of them:
A new definition of competition: industry game changers
A new definition of shopping: mobile and online imperatives
New retail channels: social retail outlets
A new definition of store: merchantenment, retailtenment
In store technology that customers really care about
IoT: to gain operational efficiencies and deeper customer relationships
