From Zero Waste Grocery Stores to Sprawling Accessories Stores

 - Sep 27, 2017
From zero waste grocery stores to sprawling accessories shops, the September 2017 retail trends reveal that brands are taking very different approaches when it comes to adapting to the changing face of brick-and-mortar shopping.

On the one hand, the September 2017 retail trends highlight a number of minimalist shops that place more emphasis on the products themselves than the shopping experience as a whole. One such example is Ottawa's NU Grocery, which is a zero-waste store that prioritizes sustainability above all else.

On the other hand, a number of retailers have made the effort to add extra services and amenities to their stores in order to differentiate themselves from ecommerce platforms. For instance, Ardene recently opened a large-format concept shop that includes everything from phone charging stations, to a social media photo booth.
