Top 50 Retail Trends in September

From P2P Clothing Studios to Customizable Pop-Up Collections

— September 29, 2018 — Business
These September 2018 retail trends range from P2P clothing shop studios to customizable pop-up collections. A standout, New York's Depop store aims to teach the community how to sell online by translating the vintage clothing app's virtual business model into a brick-and-mortar space. Other notables include Consortium's custom-only pop-up store which specializes in carrying brands that are exclusively made-to-order.

Other September 2018 retail trends to note include Philippe le Bac's fist-ever online store -- the European retailer is known for its luxury-minded and well-crafted products that are offered at an accessible price point -- and Balenciaga's exclusive sneaker offering -- 'Balenciaga Track' -- which can only be purchased by appointment.

Additional retail innovations to note include QSR loyalty offerings like Olive Garden's annual pasta pass which offers discounts year-round, and the McGold Card, a new mobile reward from McDonald's that will unlock a lifetime of free meals for one lucky customer.
