Post-Crisis Retail

Brick and mortar spaces will likely undergo long term changes post-COVID

Trend - After the restrictions on public movement due to COVID-19 have eased or lifted around the world, retail spaces will still require additional safety measures in order to keep infection risks at a minimum. This will occur (and is already occurring) in the form of contactless payment systems, limiting customers in-store, and redesigned layouts that enforce physical distance between customers.

Insight - With physical distancing restrictions likely to be lifted before there's a vaccine for COVID-19, governments, brands and consumers alike are concerned about a resurge in infections when life goes back to the way it once was. Preventing this is of utmost concern for most, and so certain measures that lower risks are being considered by companies and institutions. Even once the crisis has resolved itself with a vaccine, the psychological mark it'll leave on people who's lives have been disrupted drastically because of this crisis will likely remain, causing brands to act accordingly.
Workshop Question - How is your brand preparing for a post-COVID world?
