Retail: Customer priorities are changing ...

The historical trio price, proximity, and choice, which kept many brands afloat for years, today
seems obsolete in the face of new demands of consumers ...
"Find what I'm looking for" is the number one priority for customers revealed by the results of the
2019 Value for Shopper® Barometer, conducted among 5,000 French women and French men
by Altavia Shoppermind in partnership with OpinionWay.
This criterion supersedes that of the price, historically ranked number one, was always
necessary but is no longer sufficient, at a time when online habits dictate new standards of
customer expectations.
The criterion "find what I'm looking for" comes at the top of the ranking (55.1% for food) in front
of "save money" (53%) and "optimize my time" (46%). %) in 6 sectors out of the 7 studied.
The only sector where the price remains No. 1 is the clothing sector.

What are the keys to setting up an retail-specific omnichannel strategy?

Written by Zoé Baillieux on Jun 18, 2019 3:41:08 PM

For its fifth edition, Paris Retail Week entirely revamped itself. To personalize the customer experience, the event put a brand new thematic program run by eight mentors in place. As recognized experts in their field, they, therefore, will be points of reference for professionals seeking answers to their daily problems.

For retailers, the challenge is no longer to attract consumers online or in stores. It is now imperative to satisfy on all communication channels. But for "online" and "offline" to be in conjunction, it is imperative to establish a complementarity between the different channels, otherwise risk seeing consumer move on to the competition. A difficult exercise that Tatiana Pecanac-Ayel, e-commerce and cross-channel manager at Devred 1902, is undertaking.
She is responsible for fluidifying the customer journey in connection with the ready-to-wear menswear brand outlets. She must constantly analyze customers shopping journey to better meet their expectations. She will attend Paris Retail Week and will discuss these challenges.

The eight issues and eight mentors who shall represent them can be seen at the Porte de Versailles exhibition, in Paris, from September 24-26 2019. This major European event for the entire trade ecosystem will bring together 25,000 professional visitors, from start-ups to major e-commerce brands and retail brands. During the event, e-retailers and retailers will have the opportunity to interact with more than 600 exhibitors and attend 200 conferences to better negotiate and benefit from forthcoming changes in connected commerce.

In addition to a digital strategy, opening a physical store or partnering with a distributor makes sense for proximity, credibility, and commitment with customers.

Could hyper digitization, often sought after by brands, be altered and turned towards a more human receptive experience? "Placing encounters at the center of our activities, improving the product experience and customer experience through a physical store is clearly an added value for a brand in the midst of establishing itself," says Valérie Piotte, General Manager at Altavia Cosmic. For example, when the American bedding brand Casper opens a "nap shop" in the heart of New York, when Sézane bets on offering its limited stock collections in a "showroom" style apartment, or when online furniture store Miliboo opens a digital shop that provides decoration coaching, the need to live an experience acts as breath of fresh air. "We have to come up with an in-store value-added proposition on the notions of exchanges, additional services, and live product demonstrations", continues Valérie Piotte.
