Retail Changes That Will Surely Dominate 2021
There is always something so wistful about a new year. It gives you a sense of new beginning, a clean slate. This also rings true to most industries and one of those is the retail industry. A new trend and a new challenge to try. We, at Malagos Homegrown Produce, an online store in Davao that is being tagged by many as the best online grocery and delivery in the City took the time to round up some of the retail changes in 2021 that we should all look forward to:
Artisanal and homegrown treats are the way to go. One of the rising trends these days which most are very particular with is knowing where their food comes from. This gave rise to people choosing stores that promote homegrown and artisanal products like the Malagos Homegrown Produce. With world renowned chocolates all the way to produce specially tilled and taken care of by local farmers, there is no wonder why many are choosing to shop safely with us.
Social commerce. This year’s surge in online shopping is here to stay, especially given the hurdles presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of brick-and-mortar stores. According to a recent study, in 2020, nearly 41% of customers said they were currently shopping online for things they would normally buy in-store. In 2021, we can expect to see social commerce become an even more integral part of the ecommerce experience for brands and shoppers alike. This rings true with the Malagos Homegrown Produce and how we are conveniently practicing this through the Facebook and Instagram Shop.
Same day delivery as the most ideal choice. In the age of instant gratification, shoppers want their orders ASAP. And same-day, store-fulfilled orders are seeing more traction from customers and brands alike. PwC reports that 88% of consumers are willing to pay for same-day or faster delivery. While same-day shipping is far from a new concept — in 2018, 51% of ecommerce retailers already offered same-day delivery — we’re likely to see it become the norm and beyond as order fulfillment technology and standards evolve in 2021. The Malagos Homegrown Produce offers this to our clients too. Whatever you may need, we’ll go the extra mile to deliver it to you as soon as we can.
Touch free technology will be the mainstream. A tremendous amount of innovation during the pandemic was born of the need to reduce the frequency of touch. And shoppers have embraced the trend with gusto. Digital shopping has soared, contactless payments have quickly become the norm, and augmented and virtual reality — technologies that have been dancing on the edge of more widespread acceptance for the last few years — are poised for growth.
