Continued Evolution in Retail and Consumer Goods

Retail and other consumer-facing businesses continue to evolve. The COVID-19 pandemic has presented its own challenges, but retail already was moving more to a world of multiple channels and retailer segments—online, mass merchants, dollar stores, department stores, and specialty retail—competing for consumers. Consumers and technology continue to morph rapidly, and retail has long since ceased to be a “one-size-fits-all” proposition.

The impact and look of online retail continue to unfold. Over the last few years, we have witnessed a dramatically altered retail landscape, littered with the remains of well-known and historical retail brands.

Consumers’ behaviors, preferences, and technology utilization continue to change, creating a moving target and endless stream of challenges for even the best retailers. Now more than ever, retail survival is a journey and not a destination.
