66 Narrative Retail Concepts

From Recipe-Based Grocery Stores to Shoppable Couture Installations

— November 23, 2015 — Business
Narrative retail concepts are dynamic shopping experiences that go beyond creating a point of purchase to deliver a customized experience that communicates a brand's values. Often playing a role in forming consumer expectations of the brand, retail concepts that illuminate a brand's heritage and values help establish the store as a valuable resource that can help consumers meet their goals.

An excellent example of an engaging retail concept that communicates a brand's story to shoppers is Pantry, a recently launched supermarket concept. Pantry was conceived as a means to offering consumers a one-stop shop where they can gather everything they need to make a the perfect meal at home. With 20 ingredient stations throughout the store, Pantry educates consumers and engages them in their pursuit of low-waste food consumption and democratizing access to quality, chef-curated ingredients.
