In-Person E-Tail

Online and offline shopping reach a level playing ground to support each vertical

Implications - The online and offline retail worlds are colliding as we see a distinct increase in the ways that shoppers are demanding a tangible experience meshed with a discounted one. The clear divide between the two realms has predominantly been rooted in convenience and cost difference, but as more shoppers move online, the number of consumers craving an in-store experience is rising. A resulting push of consumers back into stores speaks to consumer demand for a custom, tangible shopping experience, but also to impulsive shoppers that are more comfortable with in-store purchasing.
