Viva IRL: An Experiential Evolution.
There is no new normal, consumers aren’t interested in returning to the status quo, and retailers will need to respond accordingly. Retail owned brands (private brands) must evolve to meet the needs of modern consumers. Today’s consumers are experiencing a longing for fundamental, human connection and profound, intense sensory experiences —a yearning for the visceral rather than the virtual.
