From Virtual Customer Service Reps to Wholesale Health Stores

 - Dec 26, 2014
These December 2014 retail trends range from virtual customer service representatives to image-based shopping platforms that put a heavy focus on modern technology.

In addition to e-retail platforms, mobile shopping apps are becoming one of the most popular ways that many of us purchase clothing, electronics and other goods. Because of this emerging pattern, retailers are marketing more to mobile users and are ensuring that one doesn't even need to leave their home when shopping or dealing with a customer service issue.

In addition to virtual customer service reps and paperless coupon apps, these December 2014 retail trends also include digital payment apps that send cash with a photo along with temporary retail venues that offer services in exchange for a tweet.
