When COVID-19 first hit, consumers turned to e-commerce sites to deliver groceries, buy products, and avoid any unnecessary human interaction. Now that some time has passed, consumers are starting to crave that in-store connection and are headed back to physical stores. But their expectations on the shopping experience have forever changed.
Customers now expect the same level of flexibility, convenience, and instant gratification they received with online shopping. While this is creating a myriad of challenges for retailers to rethink their operations, it’s also opening a multitude of new opportunities to reinvent in-store shopping.
