Attract, retain, and develop Millennial and Gen Z retail customers fast—while making every other generation of customers more valuable, too.

Your Challenge

Millennials and Gen Z are fundamentally changing the consumer relationship with retail. Legacy retailers are going out of business fast, malls are trying to repurpose themselves to become more relevant, and Millennial consumers are looking for an entirely different shopping experiences than what retailers traditionally offered. What is a retail executive to do?! The answer depends on your retail experience, products, generational segment (such as affluent Millennials), and how fast you’re willing to adapt to become a must-visit retailer.

Our Solution

We apply our unique 5-Point Millennial and Gen Z Retail Review to your entire retail experience, from the digital experience prior to walking into a store all the way through how you engage during and after a visit. We will combine our unique generational expertise with quantitative and frontline research so that you have original data to back up every solution you implement.

We will literally show you how Millennials and Gen Z experience your retail environment, which is almost completely the opposite of how other shoppers experience a physical retail space. Our work on-site with retailers and retail partners, from jewelry retailers to global CPG companies and automobile dealers, provides a unique lens into your store experience that you cannot find anywhere else.

We will also review data specific to your customers including your own data.
