Simulated Selling

Virtual shopping aids offer autonomy without sacrificing in-store engagement

Implications - While autonomous shopping offers quick and hassle-free methods of retail, relying on oneself to buy and analyze products can be stressful. Seeking to provide a digital alternative, retailers are turning to virtual in-store aids that provide sources of feedback and consumer engagement in a more intimate, yet individually tailored manner. This speaks to a desire to maintain a sense of customer service through more digital, yet less cumbersome means.
