How do you see the way you consume nowadays? For a millennial like me, I get the best of both traditional and e-commerce (online shopping) in my daily needs. I get to shop with my mobile phone without the hassle of going out. On the other hand, going to retail stores give me a sense of confidence of buying things without flaws.
There is no doubt that retail is experiencing a tremendous amount of change. With record number of retail platforms going online and legacy brands shutting down, one can surely say that the retail disruption we have heard of has now arrived.
