What's Happening in Big Box Retail?
Shoppers are demanding more from their shopping experiences, and big box retailers must be innovative or risk becoming obsolete. With the growth of online shopping, the factor which once set big box stores apart from their competition—convenience—is no longer a differentiator. eCommerce sellers offer a wider variety of products, with easier navigation than one would find in store. Because of this, many large retail chains are downsizing, or closing completely.
