The landscape of retail is changing for good, when the shops begin to re-open and customers flood our highstreets once again, it’s going to be a completely different world, one that requires a whole new approach when it comes to interacting with and servicing customers safely.
Many big chains are starting to seriously consider what your average high street store may look like in the months to come, and they are making plans to adopt new ways of working. Cough & sneeze shields at customer service points, a sanitation point at each entrance with mandatory use, social distancing in queues and around the store and anxious customers with their face masks on waiting at the end of aisles for the coast to be clear. These are just some of the expected changes in behaviours that are expected to become the new normal.
These changes are expected to be with us for quite some time, and it is up to retailers and brands to make the customer feel as comfortable and as safe as possible. The customer experience remains a critical aspect of the physical retail environment and now with added levels of complexity. So how can the shopper’s journey feel as if their welfare is being taken care of whilst being enjoyable and inspirational? We need to get this bit right or they just will not shop in-store, it is as simple as that.
Here at Ripple, we are doing our bit to not only support brands and retailers, but small businesses, office environments and the public sector too.
