The Emergence of the Hybrid Shopper in a Post-Pandemic Retail World
When the pandemic caused consumers to shift to online shopping, retailers accelerated the investments in omnichannel services and technologies many had already been making in recent years. Although we now have a much better handle on the pandemic, supply chain issues continue to cause inventory shortages, shipping delays, and other challenges that have resulted in retailers expanding their shopping and fulfillment offerings to meet the expectations of the Hybrid Shopper.
Today’s Hybrid Shopper expects a seamless experience across many different in-store and online shopping channels, convenience, omnichannel fulfillment options, speedy delivery, and lower costs when making purchases. To better understand the emergence of the Hybrid Shopper, Radial commissioned a survey of 1,000 U.S. consumers to discover their ever-evolving behaviors and expectations, as well as reveal what factors impact their purchasing and order fulfillment decisions.
