If you want to succeed in Retail, you must be data oriented
Technology has replaced location as the most important factor in the success of retail.
More and more consumers want to buy online and pick up in-store in order to enjoy the best of both worlds. Shoppers under 30 love the concept of showroom stores with no inventory, like Nordstrom Local, and even traditional shoppers over 45 like the concept.
Many players in the retail space are facing existential questions such as, “Which store should I shut down?” or “Where do I open my next store?”.
What’s your best friend to address all those matters? Data.

#China
Auchan China is accelerating its O2O New Retail integration with his partner Taobao from Alibaba group.
Taobao’s Heart selection adopts the form of “shop-in-shop”, covering an area of ​​nearly 300 square meters located at the entrance and exit of the store.
Range of products varies around segments of home, life department store, and travel boutique, where nearly 800 SKUs have been selected.
By the end of 2018, Taobao’s selection will open a number of stores in the Yangtze River Delta, and there will be a large store with an area of ​​more than 500 square meters. The entry into Auchan retailing also means that Taobao’s selection has fully embraced Sunart Retail and opened the era “new retail acceleration”.
First Taobao Heart Selection shop-in-shop opened at Auchan Shanghai, Changyang store.
#Mobility
The transportation industry is arguably undergoing the biggest transition since the advent of the internal combustion engine. This is particularly evident when you look at consumer behavior: a growing group of people is no longer buying cars, they’re buying miles, or perhaps more accurately, arrivals. In 2017 alone, Goldman Sachs reported that 15 million ride-hailing trips were taken per day around the world.
According to Crunchbase, nearly six thousand new mobility startups were founded over the past 5 years. The autonomous, electric future is on the horizon. The Boston Consulting Group forecasts that, by 2030, around a quarter of all miles driven in the US will be in shared autonomous electric vehicles. While all of this innovation is exciting, much of the usage is happening in siloed apps.
Also, the mission of making seamless mobility available to everyone or, put differently, democratizing access to locations depends on several emerging concepts in urban transportation. The first is the idea of trip bundles. In cities, people are starting to hack together trip bundles using multiple modes, payment methods and apps and essentially acting as their own travel agent. There must be a better way.
