Back to Retail - Reinventing the Basics

Back to Retail - Reinventing the Basics

The illusions of globalisation are at an end. The retail sector is facing more changes in the next five years than it has in the last fifty. A new normality is emerging, less is taking the place of more. When a middle-class salary no longer stretches to a middle-class way of life, the "Age of Less" engenders new lifestyles: "trading down", "smart shopping", "luxury shame" and "stealth wealth" – covering needs rather than engaging in consumer frenzy. The new luxury is in the basics.
Retailing has to reinvent itself – gone are the days of "more of the same". It's no longer about speed and size at any price – what counts is working together throughout the entire value chain: cooperative societies, partner networks, pooled procurement. Is the future of retailing taking it back to its origins? Only far-sighted egoism that sees beyond the merely commercial can generate social wealth. Upright entrepreneurs of the Gottlieb Duttweiler type will take the place of short-termist profiteers.
Come and listen to proven experts at the GDI Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute discussing possible developments.
