Why the In-Store Experience is Tapping into Customers’ Love for Ecommerce

Shoppers are much more accustomed to ecommerce today than 18 months ago, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t still bringing the digital to the physical store.

With this overwhelming blend of the two retail worlds, it’s driving brick and mortar stores to experiment with how they can blur the lines of the physical experience with online convenience and frictionlessness.
