Dubai: For retailers, adapting to the changing retail environment will be instrumental in enticing customers into physical stores and in creating seamless omni channel shopping experiences. Here are some trends that are expected to dominate the retail sector: Personalisation in retail will become increasingly important to consumers. Tactics retailers once used to speak directly to customers (such as using first names in an email) have become outdated. At the same time, though, consumers are searching for personalised shopping experiences, so we can expect to see retailers testing new ways to appeal to this desire.

When it comes to the retail industry, the only constant is change, and hence, innovation will always be a large part of the concept & design in developing new stores, says Anand Kumar, executive director at ABRA VM & SD International. Speaking to Khaleej Times at the RECon Mena 2017 exhibition and conference, Kumar noted that retailers like pharmacies and optical stores traditionally have a very similar white theme across stores; however, retailers have started to break way from this set theme and are innovating with new color schemes and layouts based on market research and shopping trends. Another innovation in design, he said, revolves around the 'less is more' concept, where many stores are moving towards using minimalist design to communicate their offering in a less cluttered environment.
