A complete digital strategy includes interaction at every point along the path to purchase, including finding stores, making lists, checking prices, researching products, sharing content and purchasing.

These touch points occur both in and out of stores, and consumers are increasingly using technology to simplify and improve the process. In-store digital enablement options can bring the ease, convenience and personalization of online into brick-and-mortar stores. Incorporating digital strategies into the in-store experience is not just a nice-to-have, these options can increase time in store, engagement levels, basket size and shopper satisfaction.

Saving rather than spending In 2008 consumers were borrowing 62p for every £1 they saved and by the end of 2009 this was down to 13p per £1.
