Greetings !

In addition to rounding up the top articles and insights on the site, this week's newsletter is spotlighting Browse Buying. While Millennials prefer to exploit the convenience, ease and speed of ecommerce, those belonging to Gen Z enjoy the physical retail experience. Here we're seeing new spaces emerging that cater to a browse-based mentality, where younger consumers can take their time in brick and mortar locations, finding the products that best suit them.

The new Kid Cavern department store set to open in Liverpool is a great example, boasting over 15,000 square feet for physical retail experiences.
