The retail landscape has changed but the importance of the holiday season remains constant. To win, brands must meet today?s curious, demanding and impatient consumers with consistent, seamless and assistive experiences. Shoppers are open to buying from new retailers, as long as they are finding what they are looking for in the moment. So, it is imperative for retailers to adopt to this trend and not just rely on consumer loyalty. Making up-to-date information available to shoppers when they need on the device they are searching on, makes a world of difference in the outcome.
