The new normal for retail.
While the new normal is a cliche, it is true when considering retail for the back half of 2020 and beyond.
It is great news that businesses are reopening. However, the coronavirus is still there. This means that our retail businesses need to be safe. Our businesses need to be flexible in how we transact.
- Being easily found online is critical.
- Managing online sales efficiently and profitably are key.
- Offering click and collect is essential.
- Seamlessly connecting your physical shop and online is vital.
- Being able to sell from anywhere as you take the business to where people are situated through home delivery and more.
- Stocking what people want now matters.
- Setting opening hours and your roster to maximise revenue matters.
These things matter.
In our experience, prior to this year many small business retailers went online because they thought they should – usually, without a plan or a specific focus.
Now, being online properly and with focus is as critical to a retail business as having the right staff and the right stock.
Being online is fundamental to business success. This is the new normal.
