Retail Culture

Brands are forming a corporate personality through the retail space

Implications - As online retail stores increase in popularity and physical stores decrease in numbers, companies must be more inventive with the few physical spaces they employ. To best optimize on real-life retail, corporations are infusing their spaces with brand personality through hybrid services, carefully chosen store employees and hyper-conscious decor. This builds a culture around the brand that extends far beyond ambiance.
