Disruption in retail is not new. But the pace of change is now an order of magnitude faster. The effect on the entire ecosystem is magnified, from manufacturers to retailers to landlords, luxury to mass and every touchpoint in between. With consumers now starting the majority of product searches on Amazon, Alibaba, and T-Mall, doubling down on old tactics and advisory models will not work. This change brings unprecedented opportunity for those willing to think and work differently. Our deeply experienced, hands-on retail team will work alongside you to guide and support your transformation as you reinvent the very meaning of the word retail.
