Let’s face it, our in-store experience has dramatically changed in the past year. Since COVID-19 spread across the world, we have had to adapt our daily activities to reduce the risk of transmission.
Now more than ever, we need to protect ourselves and others whilst adjusting to these changes. Shopping has become a task that involves a new level of caution for customers and business owners. Having to wear masks and socially distance in-store, the usual way we used to shop has now become a daunting experience.
Based upon recent research, 47% of consumers are still reluctant to shop in-store or dine inside a restaurant. For those anxious about waiting in line or being exposed to busy stores, many opportunities have been missed to enjoy local goods and produce.
Is this the new normal? There must be a way that shoppers can enjoy much loved ‘brick and mortar’ stores without having to expose themselves to risk?
