With so many distractions surrounding us all, retailers are having to work harder and smarter to keep customers engaged in-store. Whether we have our heads down browsing our smart phone while in the queue, or we’re skipping the crowds altogether to order online from the comfort of our sofa, retail outlets find themselves facing the challenge of how to make the in-store experience more inviting, more efficient, and more cohesive.
For modern brands, keeping up with the demands of digitally connected and commercially aware consumers is a priority. Those beginning life as wholesale distributors are ultimately looking to operate as multi-channel businesses in order to fulfil customer needs both online and in-store.
In a booming digital economy, it’s becoming more important than ever for businesses to adopt a multi-channel approach to selling. But when you’re starting out as a pure-play distributor, the path towards eventually selling your own goods through various different outlets, expanding your warehouse space and staffing levels or moving into retail premises can seem like a tough one.
