From Mobile Discount Stores to Sports Broadcasting Shops

Now that the inclusion of tablets, touchscreens and other high-tech stations are becoming commonplace in many retail stores, the top July 2015 ideas reflect a push to take in-store technology to the next level. This can be seen in the Sport Chek flagship location that includes a built-in studio for sports broadcasts, pop-up social media stations for new store openings and Samsung's innovative new transparent OLED display mirrors.

Having to make weekly trips to the grocery store is one thing that many consumers dread, but supermarkets are evolving to become much more enjoyable to visit. Pantry is a shop that supplies shoppers with entire recipe kits and ingredients, while Carlo Ratti Associati and Italian supermarket chain COOP Italia imagine that the future food shops will include educational and interactive stations.

Rather than collecting everything on their lists and leaving quickly, the future of retail may even inspire shoppers to stay a while.
