When Hermès reopened their second-largest store in Guangzhou they took £2.7million in one day.  While an increase in digital sales and online presence is expected to stick in the long-term, in-store experiences will certainly not stop altogether. The brands emerging from this not only surviving, but thriving will be the ones who can corner the online market and then successfully convert new digital customers into their retail spaces. Offering a...
