Building Retail Brands Directly
Shopping is no longer an essential household chore but a popular leisure pastime. The shopping experience has been enhanced by giant superstores, and by shopping malls that offer hundreds of stores under the same roof in combination with restaurants and entertainment: a complete family ‘day out’. The extension of opening times to twelve-hour days and seven-day weeks makes the experience available to everyone. Clustered together in retail centres, parks, precincts and malls, departments stores and specialists offer an ever widening range of goods from around the world.
