FutureShop: The Future of Retail Innovation | FutureSHop

Our Vision forRetail Innovation

Retail Innovation Video

We are physical designers and innovators that transform and connect retail stores to the virtual shopping experience in a way that is known as Phygital (marrying a physical concept with digital; sort of a new iteration of click-and-mortar). The lines of traditional retail formats and digital purchasing behaviors have blurred, opening the doors to new and exciting business models that both streamline the consumer experience and business operations.

Today’s disruption represents a time of opportunity as the pace of retail innovation and transformation increases.

Cuhaci & Peterson’s capabilities are transforming similarly to address and solve for this changing landscape.

Why Do We Need Retail Innovation Now?

Accelerated change is upon us. Retail has reached an inflection point based upon the pandemic and the Grocery Industry is in the epicenter. Increasingly, consumers are demanding an unlimited assortment of products, immediate fulfillment to autonomous delivery and a willingness to pay less.

As these demands are fulfilled by retailers, many stores will disappear or become consolidated. The remaining stores will condense in size and need to fundamentally reshape their retail experience to fit the new landscape. This tectonic disruption is not the one that will impact retailers in the future, but the one that is being felt today. We are making sure those necessary solutions exist now.
