The Retail Focus Podcast

Retail Focus 8/22/21 – Studying the Whole Consumer; Walmart’s Slow & Steady Sales Increases

August 23, 2021

Our interview guest is Stefan Read, SVP of Engagements and Strategy Practice Lead at Jackman, who joins us to discuss their ongoing Human Insights Study and why it is important for retailers to have a complete view of their customers—including their motivations and reasons for action (or inaction). In news, we discuss how Walmart’s steady sales growth differs from other retailers (and how people are returning to their brick-and-mortar offerings) and how customers “trading up” may influence home improvement retailers going forward after Lowe’s and Home Depot both noted high-dollar sales ticking upward recently.
