31 Examples of Community Retail

From Cozy Retail Lifestyle Villages to Digital Wine Club Showrooms

— November 18, 2015 — Business
From cozy retail lifestyle villages that will make you want to stick around to quaint hybrid retail cafes that encourage interaction between customers, there are plenty of examples of community-focused concepts that speak to the modern function of retail spaces. As many brands are taking note of this shift and are using this information to inform more interactive and welcoming spaces, a number of highly innovative concepts have emerged in recent months.

Such community-focused retail concepts are representative of the evolving nature of the relationship between the consumer and brand. A winning example of this future-thinking movement is IKEA Warsaw's program, called Kuchnia Spotkan in Polish. The initiative involves the opening of a community kitchen at the IKEA Warsaw location that can be rented by customers free of charge and used as a space to host friends and family for dinner.
