Covid-19 has accelerated a long-term retail trend: millions more shoppers are buying online instead of istore. But while physical visitor numbers have fallen, the pandemic has created vast opportunities for retailers to rethink their brick and mortar assets.

In fact, we can already see several positive impacts:

  • Instore shopper numbers are down, but conversion and average transaction values have risen. Those visiting stores are intent to purchase.
  • Retailers are embracing new payment technologies including cardless and contactless which accelerate purchases and limit human interaction
  • Restrictions on occupancy is causing retailers to rethink store displays, payment points, and their wider physical footprint
  • Retailers are embracing new shopping journeys including Buy Online Pickup Instore, and experimenting with ways to increase basket spend and personalize journeys to increase loyalty at every touchpoint

Physical stores are a primary point of differentiation for legacy retailers. There may be fewer customers instore, but that doesn’t have to mean a fall in profits.
