In-Store Techification

Brands mimic online shopping in storefronts with smart product integration

Implications - As consumers continue to receive constant stimulation from smartphones and tablets, the in-person experience is becoming less desired in retail with more brands implementing tech into the storefront shopping experience than ever. The no-pressure solutions make retail more approachable for consumers who wish to shop uninterrupted, yet still demand a personalized experience. The approach makes a connection to the simplicity associated with online shopping, but offers the instant gratification of receiving a product immediately after purchase.
