This time of year is especially busy for retailers. In France, as in many other countries around the world, the retail rush is back once again. Brick and mortar shops and online retailers double their efforts to meet customer expectations. It’s the ideal moment for brands and retailers to demonstrate their capacity to innovate and test services that can be rolled out depending on customer feedback.

Here’s a quick overview of the retail trends this year.

Paris Retail Week has been an excellent opportunity to get to know the latest trends in the sector and to verify that the barrier between the offline and online store has definitely been jumped. Experts in the field have made this clear in a number of occasions in the professional publication Retail Actual, directed to the distribution and the person responsible for point-of-sale in Spain. After attending this meeting, my impression is that our country can be seen close up in the French capital which has managed to combine both environments with mastery. We were able to verify that first hand on the tour provided by the organization allowing us to get to know some of the most important businesses of the sector.

I don’t know about you, but when someone mentions background music in shops, the first thing that comes to my mind is Pretty Woman. We can all picture Julia Roberts wearing white gloves with a large smile on her face as she strolls from shop to shop to the famous Roy Orbison tune, fully enjoying the moment.

Reality is rather different, and the typical in-store musical experience differs from this perfect Wednesday afternoon picture. It’s often an afterthought—and sometimes even a nightmare.
