Make retail roundtableby Cara Bamford, James Chase, Katy Ghahremani, Peter Greaves, Grigor Grigorov, Jack Sallabank, Bill Webb and Sarah Worth
The retail sector is in tremendous flux, with major threats brought to bear from e-commerce, as well as the changing nature of how and why we shop. One thing’s certain: it’s no longer just about transactions.
Our second edition of Exchange, published in 2019, combines trends-based interviews and essays from leading retailers, developers and consultants with design analysis from the Make team. Key themes – from Hong Kong and China to Sydney and London – include localism, flexibility, and the integration of additional uses and attractions.
Flexibility in both the long and short term is at the forefront of the conversation. It’s a time of both challenges and opportunities for the retail sector.
