Benchmarking Report: Forging the Store of The Future

From Online To Instore

The way we shop has changed radically over the last ten years. Retailers have moved from a single channel existence, mainly bricks-and-mortar stores and mail order catalogues, to multiple channels. The customer journey is no longer a linear path; the challenge for both retailers and brands is to keep up with a consumer whose shopping journey stops and starts, moves from online to mobile to the storefront and back again. We surveyed 200 European retailers how they're dealing with this change and the challenges they face.

Changing Face of the Retail Experience

In Q2 of 2017 WBR Digital surveyed 100 senior executives at major UK retailers on behalf of VoucherCodes. The research prioritised large multi-channel retailers from a wide variety of verticals, including: fashion, luxury, sports, homeware, DIY, and consumer electronics.Respondents to the survey were Heads or Directors of eCommerce, Retail, Omnichannel, Multi-channel or Digital. The survey was conducted by appointment over the telephone. The results were compiled and anonymised by WBR Digital and are presented here with analysis and commentary by WBR Digital and VoucherCodes.
