SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL:

Millennial Post-Pandemic Shopping Destination Preferences

RMS-Webinar-Series.png

As life emerges from the Pandemic, the internet and smartphone continue to answer “commodity-driven needs,” but fashion and lifestyle enhancing purchases must be part of a personal journey – a highly experiential activity, be it Main St. shopping combined with local dining, or a “Disneyesque” day trip to what was once the local mall. 


Join our panel of experts discussing the elements necessary to fulfil shoppers’ personal desires by creating an emotional connection, compelling enough for them to leave their keypad - go out - and physically embrace, the experience awaiting them.


Learn why:

  • Big malls and big buildings full of undifferentiated stuff are OUT.

  • Small, personalized, neighborhood shops are making a comeback, along with mixed-use settings, and malls like The Grove and Americana in LA and others, are IN.

  • Giants like Walmart and Target will expand their small neighborhood store strategies, and Amazon and other pure internet players will expand “brick and mortar” store strategies into consumer identified target markets.


Simply stated, in person shopping requires serendipity. It isn’t enough to have the customer say, “I got what I needed.” The shopping experience must translate into “We had such a great time.”
