Retail Industry Market Research
Keeping up with consumers’ fast-changing wants and needs is half the battle – staying relevant and offering products that are new, innovative and on-trend.
Then there’s the changing dynamic in-store towards experiential retail and the escalating demands of online shopping and ever faster delivery. Retailers need to respond to consumers’ increasing sense of urgency as they become accustomed to the efficiency of the ‘search and filter’ they get online. At the same time, retailers benefit from lots of open interaction with customers and the ability to build loyalty. By embracing this complexity, multiple opportunities emerge for retailers looking to differentiate and stand out from the crowd.
