There has been a growing interest in focusing on the consumer experience. Retailers notice that consumers are becoming more demanding, and they are expecting comfort and immediate satisfaction. Consumers are looking for a personalized experience that helps in building brand loyalty. In response to this trend, marketers focus on personalization and providing the right experience at the right time.
The coronavirus crisis brings up one solid truth that physical stores are irreplaceable. Although, the physical stores can not continue by keeping the same traditional structure.
Physical stores are at the center of attention. Considering that, online players such as Amazon and Alibaba are opening physical stores to provide the full experience that consumers are accustomed to online. These companies maintain the same philosophy of data collection in their physical stores. Most of them are equipped with technology that allows them to collect data from their consumers and use it to make informed decisions.

A fashion company runs a campaign on selected members/customers and invites them for a personal visit to the store to check the new collection before the official launch.
