All About Retail: Dark Stores Are Here

Last June we discussed the various phases of retail in response to COVID-19, and as the new year begins it seems that we are starting the transition from “Re-emergence & Discovery” to “A Brave New World” as businesses continue to evolve in order to remain open while still protecting customers and employees. This is exemplified through the emergence of ‘Dark Stores’ – traditional retail stores that have been converted to local fulfillment centers for delivery and pick-up orders only. Join us as we discuss how the nature of retail shopping has changed globally, what we can expect and how it affects our industries, and how we can provide signage and display solutions that will enable companies to effectively operate in this new normal.
