Innovation starts with ideas. And ideas flourish in venues that avoid limitations. In our annual call for big ideas, Retail Environments magazine asked readers to think beyond budgets, resources, timelines, management commitment, team in-buy, and other restrictive parameters of their everyday work. To blue-sky it.
Contributions ran the gambit from materials to new store concepts. Running through the ideas are a few common themes: curation, flexibility, authenticity, thoughtful use of assets, and lifestyle consideration. So sit back and get ready to embark for some major brain stimulation. It’s going to be a beautiful flight. Clear skies are ahead.
