From Pop-Up Sandal Shops to Energy-Saving Concept Stores

 - Aug 9, 2017
From high-tech staff-less convenience stores to shop-in-shop displays, these retail concept stores showcase the many ways in which retailers are experimenting with new ideas that will drive the future of shopping.

While some retailers are catching the eyes of consumers by opening unusual pop-up shops in locations like parking lots, others are focused on embracing the latest technologies for improving the discovery and checkout processes. Some retailers are now integrating touchscreen tables, as well as tablet checkout stations that put a greater emphasis on empowering consumers to make their own informed choices when it comes to purchasing products.

A number of big box retailers are now also experimenting with the launch of small-format urban shops, which offer a hyper-curated selection of products for discerning shoppers who have limited space in their own homes.
