    Will marketplace sellers carry the Prime Day for Amazon?

    I think it's a give and take relationship between marketplace sellers and Amazon. The sellers get a renowned, effective and intuitive e-commerce platform while Amazon gets to offer multiple product categories and the best prices for their members. Amazon will do whatever it can to drive traffic and sales on its platform irrespective of own or third-party sales.

    Virtual try-on technology is not new but could be really effective in increasing online visits as there is a gamification element and it's fun to engage with. For Walmart, its success will depend a lot the style of clothes, the ease of using the technology and if their target audience would find it useful.

    Can Nike ‘Just Do It’ with a hybrid work model?

    I strongly believe that giving employees the flexibility to choose WHERE they want to get their work done from can actually boost their productivity as they are less stressed about commuting/finding conference rooms and managing other duties such as picking up kids on time, etc.

    Are retailers making it too tough for seniors to shop online?

    An intuitive user experience has to be intuitive for all ages! With more and more Baby Boomers making purchases online, this strategy becomes even more important along with providing the necessary onboarding tutorials to help this generation navigate better. Given the ease and convenience of online shopping, I anticipate many Boomers to continue this pandemic-adopted habit post-vaccinations and easing of restrictions as well.

    Will Americans go shopping for dressier clothes as the COVID-19 threat is reduced?

    There is pent-up demand for dressier clothes in social settings coming out of the pandemic but I anticipate there would still be a huge demand for casual/leisure wear as people have been conditioned to put comfort above fashion. Brands can tap into this behavior by designing clothes that look dressier but are also extremely comfortable.

    Will Google Maps bring a new dimension to the in-store experience?

    Using Google maps for in-store navigation and item placement could be useful when customers want a contactless experience or if they are unable to find a sales associate to help them find what they need. A lot depends upon how easy it would be for the retailers to implement and for the customers to navigate accurately.

    Will homey habits from the pandemic fuel Williams-Sonoma future growth?

    In-homing will surely boost Williams-Sonoma's brands. People have realized the importance of having an effective WFH set-up, benefits of cooking and designing more functional spaces and this will stay with them in the long run.
