Top 100 Business Trends in February

From eCommerce Dollar Stores to AI Shopping Carts

— February 23, 2019 — Business
This list of February 2019 business innovations spotlights some of the ways in which businesses are extending its services to appeal to the consumer, with examples ranging from eCommerce Dollar Stores to design-friendly car dealerships.

This month, the Dollar Store launched an eCommerce platform, enabling Canadian consumers to purchase the brand's affordable essentials in a more convenient manner. This display of brand diversity was seen again with Arby's subscription service launch, in which the fast food brand created and retailed merchandise for those looking to support their fandom in unique ways.

Moreover, businesses have looked to ways in which tech can be integrated to enhance the consumer experience, resulting in numerous innovations like AI shopping carts, which can help the shopper discover deals.
