The brick and mortar retail industry has been suffering. We don’t need analysts to tell us that because we’re surrounded by store closings. Some of the oldest, most venerated retailers that until recently were expanding and opening new stores around the country and even around the world, are now shuttering many of those same stores. And in large numbers.
Nor do we need analysts to tell us who the culprit is, because we all know that brick and mortar retailers are being edged out by the growing popularity of online shopping.
The most obvious move that retailers have made to remain solvent has been adding their own online stores. But that didn’t save Borders from extinction. And that’s at least partly because the online shopping marketplaces are at least as fiercely competitive, or even more so, than the brick and mortar market. Retailers have also learned to make customer service their highest priority. That’s what today’s shoppers expect and demand.
So let’s cut to the chase. Retailers need all the help they can get. To stay in business. To turn a profit.
