Retail transformation is necessary to adapt to continuing changes to consumer behaviors. When we think about changes in retail, we tend to think Amazon or Internet retailing. These however are just the latest disruptions. Looking back over the last century retail has been in a constant state of disruption and the need for retail transformation is ever present.
Each time a new disrupter emerges brands and retailers are forced to change or die. A good example of this is seven of the eight largest retailers in the 1980s were acquired or out of business by the turn of the century. Over the last decade we’ve seen over twenty five percent of all malls close. The real question is not if retail transformation needs to happen, but what changes are necessary today and how do brands encourage retailers to make them happen? When it comes to changing behavior with distributors, retailers and even consumers incentives are a brand’s tool of choice.
