The corona crisis and lockdowns have hit hard, regardless of industry. One month into what has been described as the worst crisis since World War II, closed shops and empty streets have unfortunately become a common sight. Physical retail is particularly hard hit by the crisis.
If you are sitting on a full inventory supply of spring and summer collections that do not contain Japanese toilets or toilet paper, it is important to rethink your online strategy in order to survive. In the case that your brand or store is not already doing e-commerce, this is definitely the time to start, and if you are already running an online store, this is the time to focus on your online strategy.
