This is the first of five videos describing some of the world’s top retail trends, as presented by John Williams and Maureen Atkinson, Senior Partners at J.C. Williams Group.
The consultancy is part of the bigger Ebeltoft Group, which has released its 2018 Global Retail Trends & Innovations Report. This book highlights some key insights into what innovative retailers are doing around the world. The release includes these five video discussions as well as a free downloadable version of the book, available here.
This video provides an overview of the 2018 Global Retail Trends & Innovations Report’s first section, including naming the ‘Retail Innovation of the Year’ — San Francisco-based b8ta, including an overview of why the retailer is a shining example of retail leadership. With just nine stores in the United States, b8ta could become a terrific addition to Canada’s retail scene if the retailer finds the opportunity to move north of the border.
Feel free to comment below the video, and next week we’ll showcase the 2018 Global Retail Trends & Innovations Report’s first of four ‘hot trends’ for 2018 that will include a discussion of ’Smart Shopping’.
