In a post-Covid landscape, changing consumer needs are driving retailers to rethink bricks-and-mortar stores to be more engaging, sensorial and memorable.
Our new Hyperphysical Stores macrotrend presentation explores how e-commerce is accelerating to offer multi-layered and sometimes confusing experiences for customers and brands, while bricks-and-mortar shops are becoming bastions of extraordinary, sensorial moments.
Drawing from the framework of The Four Es, presentation covers:
Moving through the pandemic, retail experiences are being shaped by widespread financial insecurity, shifting collective priorities and changing preferences around customer journeys.
Using the Four Es of Retail, a new framework for physical retail is emerging guided by the need for community-orientated services and sensorially charged, memorable experiences.
By the 2030s, the nature of physical retail will continue to flex to better serve communities, their phygital identities, and far-reaching desires for exploration and discovery.
In this presentation we examine the powerful forces reshaping how we view the retail sector, from strategies that celebrate play to intuitive store automation and nature- imbued interiors.
These are nascent trends forecast to grow in influence across the retail sector in the next one to three years. These trends are global in their reach, and focus on consumer, customer experiences or business operations. Trends include:
As people return to stores, the retail industry is implementing greener infrastructural strategies that benefit shoppers, workers and the environment on a wider scale.
Retailers are targeting families with interiors dedicated to children’s play and engagement, helping them to ease shopper pain points and foster community.
