Contactless Shopping

Brands are enabling consumers to safely try out products amid COVID-19

Trend - Brands in different industries—especially those in fashion and food & beverage—are adapting the shopping experience to meet the health and safety concerns of consumers. As a result, more brands are introducing contactless methods of sampling products or trying on clothes.

Insight - The COVID-19 pandemic has made consumers extremely aware of what they come in contact with. Due to safety concerns pertaining to sanitation, many are reluctant or unable to re-engage in activities, which were previously enjoyed in a carefree manner. Amid these enforced and psychological restrictions, consumers are looking to replicate the recreational experiences they once engaged in, while prioritizing safety.
Workshop Question - How can your brand pivot to accommodate consumer safety concerns amid a crisis?
