Entrepreneurial Retail

Retailers engage consumers by supporting feedback and creativity

Implications - In the peer-to-peer economy, retailers are not only responsible for providing goods and services to consumers, but also creating a collaborative and meaningful shopping experience. As a result, retailers are nurturing the creativity and involvement of their customers, whether it's by supporting entrepreneurial ventures or collecting honest feedback. This approach introduces a human element to the consumer-brand relationship that's necessary to stay competitive in the growing sharing economy.
