THE DOCTOR IS IN!
Retail Stores are dead! Nobody shops in stores anymore! Malls are a ghost town. These fatalistic views of traditional retail stores have been permeating the Internet for several years now. And yet….they’re not dead. Actually, some retail stores are thriving.
The Doctor agrees. Retail stores, “Mom and Pop” shops and Specialty Boutiques are NOT dead. In fact, there are some great online articles* that support this theory as well.
However, to succeed in the challenging new world of Retail, your business must evolve and seamlessly transition into the New World of Retail – and meet the subsequent expectations of entirely new generation of shoppers, clients and consumers while not alienating the traditional ones.
Now that’s a challenge! But the Doctor is here to help.
