The store of tomorrow - Less can be more

Consumer choice is overwhelming. Each year thousands of new CPG items are launched putting more pressure on managing assortment at the shelf. Many retailers are currently responding by compressing item availability to free up retail space to respond to new consumer needs and services. But is this strategy working? With more change to come, the industry needs to prepare for the future store where less assortment and category space will become the norm. We will explore which categories are at risk and how you can use a more holistic view of the department to create defence strategies, so less can be more.
