Localized Urbanite

Retailers shrink their urban footprint and adopt hyper-local cultural norms

Trend - Responding to today's tumultuous retail landscape, merchants serving urban areas across categories are opting for condensed stores with a hyper-local focus in design as well as a curated selection of products and services. This shift serves as a reflection of some consumers' heightened expectation that retailers will respond to their specific needs and preferences.

Insight - With urban consumers increasingly focusing on small businesses, eco-friendly brands, and ecommerce in the brands they choose to purchase from, big-box retailers in large cities are having to diversify how they present their retail locations. With constraints related to time and space, and preferences for authenticity, consumers that live in metropolitan areas are choosing to opt for curation over the overwhelming choices that big-box locations have long offered.
Workshop Question - How could your brand develop a highly curated retail experience for its customers?
