So much happens in the retail industry worldwide, it can feel impossible to keep up. This report selects key retailers in 2017 from different channels and different regions whose strategies may inspire and whose success requires close monitoring.
While sales growth was the basis for selection, an attempt was made to reflect the broader retail landscape worldwide, a difficult task to do with only five examples. As such, this selection attempts to feature companies with different channel, product,and geographic strategies. Some of the other companies with similarly high growth have been included in the honourable mentions in the back.
A competent digital strategy is key moving forward, but execution will vary by retailer. While online pure-players like Amazon and JD.com improve on delivery, hard lines sellers like GOME focus on a seamless omni-channel experience, and grocers like Schwarz and X5 forgo full-fledged digital stores to keep operating costs low.
