Department store retailers continue to battle to win the hearts of consumers, while undergoing digital transformation as shopping habits change. Winning department store chains are ramping up loyalty programs, marketing programs, and merchandising efforts to get ahead, while simultaneously investing in the retail technology trends that bring seamless omnichannel shopping to life. They have found that unified inventory and anywhere, anyhow fulfillment is making not only making shopping easier for customers, but also leading to bigger basket size and greater profitability. As Amazon continues to offer retailers competition and consumers become more accustomed to one-day and even same-day delivery, only those retailers that are able to remain nimble and continue to invest in technology will thrive in this new retail reality.
