1. The in-store experience is ripe for both basic and inventive improvements.
Looking at market size and where traditional retailers are going to get the largest return on investment, improving the in-store experience is still, by far, the largest opportunity for retailers. But where to start?
So many of the problems that plague brick-and-mortar stores have already been solved on digital shopping channels — or never existed in the first place.
2. Meeting consumers where they actually are on sustainability.
More consumers than ever are saying they want to shop sustainably, but they also want the low prices of fast fashion. Producing and operating sustainably in the U.S. requires government regulation, and normally comes with a higher cost.
