Asda, Halfords, Burberry, Sainsburys: how IRUK500 retailers are adapting to the way we shop
In today's Internet Retailing newsletter, we report on how IRUK500 retailers from Asda and Sainsbury's to Burberry and Halfords are adapting as shoppers change their buying habits.
We report on Asda
as it enables third-party retailers to offer their customers click and collect in their shops, on Halfords
as it unveils a new strategy that will see it learn from customer data to improve service, from Burberry
, which is also using analytics to improve its service and its relevance, and from Sainsbury's
, as it pilots new store layouts that more closely mimic the way we buy.
Today we also report on Alibaba
's 11.11 Global Shopping Festival: the giant retailer is both adapting to the needs of its Chinese customers, and looking to a future in which it hopes the day will be a global event, and the new enlarged Yoox Net-A-Porter Group
as it reports its first results since the merger. Today's guest comment comes from Andrew Maybin of Tibus
, with advice for retailers on choosing a web hosting package.Our webinars
