From Tech Maker Subscriptions to Used Electronic E-Shops

These electronics retailer innovations range from tech maker subscription services to used electronic markets that aim to save consumers money on quality gadgets. Some standouts include experiential in-store tech spaces like Sears' Connected Solutions department that lets visitors interact with automated gadgets, household appliances and other electronics. Despite of its traditional image, Sears' decision to open an immersive tech department connects the retailer to a younger and more tech-savvy audience.

Other notable examples include Google's physical store that boasts search engine-inspired and customizable product displays along with a brick-and-mortar Amazon bookstore that promotes the e-retailer's Kindle e-reader and e-book offerings.

In addition, examples like consumer-designed phone plan kiosks and makerspace cafe bars round out these electronics retailer innovations. While customized gadgets and payment plans appeal to budget-conscious Millennials, makerspace tech retailers encourage creativity while giving visitors a chance to interact with members of the tech community.
