Overview

Retail is a key customer touchpoint for mobile brands who want to focus on young consumers. In the 10 years since the launch of Apple Stores, retail has been redefined not only as an outlet to sell products but also a social space where young people connect with other youth and discover products.  The briefing answers 3 key questions about youth and retail:

1. Why are youth key to driving retail growth?
2. What is the role of word of mouth in a brand’s retail strategy?
3. How can brands turn retail space into a social space for youth customers?
