The High Street Renaissance: Directors Report

The High Street Renaissance: Directors Report

With digital’s role in retail continuing to grow, the shopping journey is becoming increasingly more connected. Customers want their shopping experience to fit into their busy lifestyles, and expect online and offline shopping journey’s to blend seamlessly.

Future Stores Guide 2016

The Future Stores Guide 2016 crystallises some future facing strategies, thinking, ideas and approaches to connected retail. It should be of interest to anybody looking to embrace technology to improve in-store experience and performance.

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.

  • Almost half of the retailers are still working on achieving a customer-centric approach when it comes to store design
