Physical retailers in countries such as Brazil, China and Thailand are also experimenting with new models, like placing shipping containers laid out like stores in smaller cities in order to assess demand, or introducing female-only departments in bricks-and-mortar branches.

Sarah Green, Admap, October 2013 , pp. 25-27

J Walker Smith, Admap, October 2013 , pp. 30-32
Retailers can no longer control the shopper context, as mobile technology means shoppers research and buy products in multiple and changing contexts: shopping now moves with the shopper through their daily life.
Retailers can no longer control the shopper context, as mobile technology means shoppers research and buy products in multiple and changing contexts: shopping now moves with the shopper through their daily life. This article explains how consumers have changed the way they make decisions, and how this is the most important change in a fluid shopper experience. Shoppers no longer travel a fixed, linear path to decision making; they now take fluid, complex and varying paths to purchase, using multiple devices and locations to research, discuss, purchase and review.
The future of shopper marketing: Connect with the Mobile Shopsumer
Ken Madden, Admap, October 2013 , pp. 18-21
This article explains how mobile devices change the ways in which consumers research products, purchase them, and then share their purchases with their social networks.
This article explains how mobile devices change the ways in which consumers research products, purchase them, and then share their purchases with their social networks. Integration of physical and digital store formats, and the proliferation of mobile devices can allow brands to engage with consumers to influence their purchase journey. Brands will need to adjust their approach to account for every part of the shopper journey and provide a seamless and coherent experience for consumers. Physical stores will become less important as purchasing locations, but will increase in importance as places for brand experiences. Mobile technology allows experiences to be personalised and advertising targeted.

Stephen Whiteside, Event Reports, MMA Forum, May 2013
This report reveals how Macy's, the US department store retailer, is embracing a range of new channels and media partnerships to engage shoppers and customers in a changing retail world, with a particular emphasis on entertainment.
This report reveals how Macy's, the US department store retailer, is embracing a range of new channels and media partnerships to engage shoppers and customers in a changing retail world, with a particular emphasis on entertainment. The report is based on an address at the MMA Forum in New York by Jennifer Kasper, whose responsibilities at the company include digital and new media. Mobile initiatives began in 2011 with 'Backstage Pass', enabling shoppers to scan in-store QR codes to access hints and tips from leading designers. This has since developed to cover partnerships with brands like Bobbi Brown, the cosmetics specialist. Store staff are also equipped with mobile devices enabling customers to pay away from fixed checkouts. To leverage the multiscreening trend, Macy's has aligned itself with several TV shows. These include NBC's 'Fashion Star', during which viewers can buy the apparel on the show in real time, and TLC's What Not to Wear, during which the fashion-expert presenter answers Macy's customers' questions via social channels like Twitter, supported by a wider team of trained respondents.

This article discusses research related to mobile advertising and the uptake of "showrooming" among consumers. In the former case, a study covering 750 mobile campaigns and 39,950 people found that ads on this channel worked best as a reminder rather than as a primary form of message delivery. Turning to the latter area, some 21% of shoppers in the US, Canada and UK now engage in "showrooming", and retailers must consider appropriate targeting, offers and loyalty schemes to tap this habit in stores.
