Customers demand
seamless shopping experiences

Hardline retailers may be ahead of the curve when it comes to omni-channel offerings, but there’s growing pressure to personalize experiences and offer more appealing last-mile fulfillment options.

While online demand is strong, it’s time to rethink the physical store to attract more traffic when shoppers are moving again. Understanding shopper preferences and designing fulfillment strategies that place inventory as close as possible to the customer are key.
