The post-covid future in the retail sector is omnichannel
If the global pandemic caused by covid-19 has made something clear to us, it is that confinement has changed consumer behavior.Given the impossibility of not leaving home but with the same needs (or even more, as a result of more free time to play sports, eat, cook ...) electronic commerce has become the perfect ally to make purchases with just one click, without setting foot outside the home. At the same time, the industry suffered from the slowdown in economic activity.The retail sector has been greatly affected by the coronavirus from different areas and perspectives: starting with the stoppage in industrial production and the drop in sales throughout the confinement, until the need to adapt factories and physical establishments implementing new measures of safety, hygiene, cleanliness and health. All of this, in turn, has led to the need for resilience to adapt to the new lifestyle.
