Description

“Apple stores have raised consumer expectations and provide a model – a Platonic ideal, perhaps – for the retailing of electricals. Retail experience – from store appearance and quality of service to merchandising of product – is arguably more important than ever: if consumers want pure functionality, they can shop online. Bricks and mortar stores must offer an element of branding and aspiration bundled up into a quality experience that provides a genuine complement to browser-based shopping.”
– John Mercer, European Retail Analyst
