While everyone talks about growing online sales, offline retail still makes up the vast majority of consumption. This special edition offers inspiration and guidance on processes & operations for retail managers in this context.

But today, retail still stands for 85% of all consumption and offers many opportunities to create superior consumer experiences and be commercially successful. As many brands and retailers have shown, a great brick and mortar store can grow far more profitable that online sales.
