Physical to virtual shopping

As the pandemic hit the world, lockdown and isolation had become the new way of life of people. During this period most of the businesses suffered since consumers were separated from their product stores through the barrier of social distancing. The economy suffered for a while but in this time of necessity, some systems flourished.

E-shopping was one system that proved its worth contrary to other services. Online ordering and delivery to doorstep have revolutionized the trading models and their enormous success helped many businesses stay afloat during the pandemic period by reaching products to customers and earning.

Digital transformation has brought about a huge change in the customer experience. But even with E-retail being the convenient choice, people are still inclined towards physical exchange at retail outlets. Brands take effort to actively engage shop customers to create an immersive experience.

Can retail spaces resume footing in the post-pandemic marketspace, dominated by E-retail?

Arlisa Febriani, Indonesia
Winner of the Blue Bag Competition 2015 – Full Scholarship and living costs paid for at Lund University
Arlisa’s story is very unique and proof that given the right opportunity, the greatest ideas will succeed. By developing a revolutionary water cleansing system, she proved that anything is possible. This is great news for her, the people of Jakarta, and quite possibly the rest of the world who live in places with little or no access to clean water!
