THE SEISMIC SHIFT TO ONLINE SHOPPING
It is often said that the pandemic greatly accelerated shifts that were already underway. For example, online video conferencing existed before the pandemic, but the pandemic permanently Zoomified our lives. Working from home existed before the pandemic, but the pandemic has dramatically shifted the balance of work to include permanent remote and hybrid models. Likewise, online shopping existed for years prior to the pandemic, but the pandemic permanently altered the retail landscape.
Traditional brick and mortar retailers were already under stress prior to the pandemic, but stay at home orders forced many consumers to adopt online shopping for their basic needs. When stores re-opened, consumers questioned if they really wanted to restrict their shopping to store hours, get in the car, find parking, wear a mask, bring hand sanitizer and wander the aisles looking for something that might not even be in stock.
With online shopping, consumers can order anytime they want from the comfort of their home with the efficiency of a Google search. They can ship products to their home, or pick them up with convenient options like in-store pickup, curbside delivery or by accessing 24 hour locker systems.
