Consumers Shift Retail Trends in 2017

Retailers To Institute New Strategies to Meet Demand

With the rise of online shopping and ecommerce, consumers are no longer content when they don’t know everything about a product. Transparency, sustainability, and quality will be at the forefront of customers’ minds when shopping in any industry. More retailers will need to create a strong brand identity to entice new and returning shoppers. And for those who prefer to shop in brick-and-mortar stores, unique in-store experiences will keep customers coming back. Giving shoppers a reason to visit in-person will help retain and even entice new consumers. However, if a company doesn’t offer mobile payment options like Apple Pay or Samsung Pay, chances are consumers will opt for a competitor.
