Sprawling, multi-option retail spaces speak to the Gen Z way of shopping

Implications - The fast pace society adheres to in the digital age has set the tone for convenience and speed in the retail space. However, as Gen Z ages, their propensity for leisurely in-store shopping ushers in sprawling spaces designed for browsing. The youth generation enjoys this approach as it taps into a predator-prey aspect of shopping that they enjoy. Unlike Millennials, this generation sees a product as a means of expression more powerful than an experience or memory and enjoys taking the time to find and choose the right item.
