Our panel of leading industry thinkers discuss the challenges that mainstream retailers are facing and several ideas on what can be done to get stores back on track.
They really don’t make stores like they used to – but why? For retailers, being “mainstream” has become a problem. From the rise of pureplay and discount retailers to shoppers with eyes fixed on personalised instore experiences; the game has changed.
