The retail landscape has seen some significant changes the past few years with digitization taking place in the everyday life of today's connected consumer. Different studies show that the consumer will switch more easily between channels. In 2015 it is predicted that 54,1% will be cross channel buyer. As we see online purchases increasing, the demand for the physical store will remain. Especially for clothes, sporting goods, shoes and personal lifestyle products the consumer is still likely to visit the store.
