Editor’s Corner: Finishing the Year Strong


The final months of the year are often the busiest for those in the retail industry—keeping shelves stocked for holiday shoppers and creating a magical in-store experience, all while planning for the coming year. We put together this latest issue of Retail News Insider to help cover all of those concerns, so you can finish the year strong—whether you work on the front lines or behind the scenes.

In our cover story, you’ll get a first look at what Interactions, SAS Retail Services and Daymon Worldwide experts are predicting for the retail industry in 2016. Our experts also share advice on what retailers and brands will need to do to keep up with consumer expectations. In addition, our Knowledge Portal and Global Perspective features will give you sneak peek at how some innovative retailers are getting a head start on implementing several of these trends.

If you are working the sales floor this holiday season, be sure to check out our Essentials to Engagement and From the Front Lines columns. Both feature tips on connecting with consumers and driving sales by finding ways to help make this hectic season a little less stressful for shoppers.

I hope you find all of the articles in this issue both informative and enjoyable. I also hope that you find time during this busy time of year to enjoy the holidays with your family and friends.

Wishing you happy holidays and joyful New Year,
