The Journey from Want to Ownership

Anamika Sahu, Managing EditorDespite the rising online market trend, the brick and mortar way of shopping will never go off-the-light. What will keep them alive is the fresh breath of innovation to attract footfall. Whether it is designing the retail stores as per the taste of the season/customers or the flavour of the competition, the need of the industry is constantly fuelling the rise of retail consulting sector globally largely driven by digital, omni-channel and future proof supply chains.
As the need to boost customer experience, optimization of product portfolios and investing in IT systems will be the top concerns of retailers, consulting firms need to broaden their depth and breadth of their offerings and even move down the value chain to better integrate operations into their home base strategy consulting portfolio. What will make the whole scene more intensified is the growing FDI in retail and the entry of new brands that would struggle to fix a place for themselves in a very short span of time. Whether it is fashion, luxury, automobile, jewellery or others, retail stores needs hands-on experience to transform people’s want into purchase.
