Retailers are justifiably hungry for information, knowledge and research to help them best position for success in today’s turbulent and ever-changing retail waters. And it’s a daunting landscape. 56% of consumers are willing to shop an out-of-country retailer if they deemed the prices to be better (source: PwC Total Retail 2016). Today’s consumers are no longer brand-loyal but are price-loyal and they constantly do comparison shopping, in-store and online, 24/7. Today like at no time before, it’s absolutely crucial that retailers keep up-to-date on the latest in pricing strategies, technologies and research.
