2016 is shaping up to be a hallmark year for physical retail! We wouldn’t if we end up remembering this year as “The Year Of The Storefront”, given the recent rise in physical media sales. Even Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer, has opened a physical storefront in Seattle, WA.
The digital is simply not a replacement for the real. Customers are anticipated to return in droves, in 2016, in search of a high-end retail experience.
