These innovative supermarket concepts range from convenient drive-thru grocers to supermarket entertainment centers like 'Nation's Experience' -- an all-in-one food store where visitors can purchase groceries, have dinner, or enjoy immersive VR tech.
Other standouts include sustainable high-end grocers like Tokyo's Fukushimaya Supermarket. The retailer offers artisanal pantry essentials and fresh produce inside a space that has been built from recycled materials. Lidl's Hamburg-based supermarket clothing pop-up is another crowd favorite, and was built amidst the city's high-end shopping district, which featured nearby retailers like Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Lidl's affordable in-house fashion line 'Esmara' was showcased inside the space, and the shop's bold design effectively drew consumers in.
Grocery store herb gardens and in-store produce butchers round off this list and illustrate Millennials' growing desire for artisanal food options that also speak to their meat-free sensibilities.
