The world we live in today is one of unprecedented change: economic, environmental, social, and technological change. These changes have transformed the way we do business, especially in the retail world. The growth of mature markets has slowed and become increasingly competitive, while new markets, like environmental sustainable/green markets, have emerged.
The change that has impacted the retail industry the most is the evolution of the consumer. Social networking has created a globalized, verbal, and open consumer base. These social trends have given the consumer insight. The technology at their disposal has given them power. Storefronts are now on laptops, mobile phones, and tablets. Transaction speed and simplicity are now major factors in the purchasing decision. The retail industry’s traditional consumer base has been replaced with a smarter and more demanding one.
