DRIVERS OF RETAILER CHOICE IN A CRISIS
WHAT DOES INNOVATION LOOK LIKE FOR RETAILERS?
It’s any new to the world idea. It could be a new product, service, advancement, method or process. Simply put, it’s doing something you haven’t done before.
Innovating in retail is more important than ever. Shoppers engage with products, services and retailers in ways that were never before possible. From the rise of new in-store experiences to expanded store-within-a-store offerings and the ever-growing role of e-commerce and omnichannel, knowing where to invest to drive growth can feel daunting.
