While shopping online can be quick and easy, summer shopping is better offline, getting out and about, exploring new retail destinations and experiences. In other words, summer is a great time to enjoy disruptive retail! Today, with the benefit of a voice assistant on your smartphone, in your car, in your house, or the office, it has never been easier to find a fun new disruptive retail experience. Read our latest article, "A Summer Guide to Disruptive Retail; Let Your Voice Assistant Lead the Way" and share your comments, and hopefully experiences, below. Cheers! Karen
