Canadian Retailer - Holiday 2016 - 21

Letts: This is an area where we can do a lot more with what we have. There

is a lot of data and it is important to invest the time in analyzing what you
can action and what will have the greatest impact on your business and
your customer.

Des Roches: We know our customers. The online survey is a powerful

tool and because we have quite a loyal core following they provide us with

America alone are set to inherit $30 trillion. As a group, they like experience. It's vital to their existence. And they're big on connecting with companies that align with their values. With all of these things in mind, what are
you doing to appeal to this increasingly influential customer group?
Green: Seventy-five per cent of our customers are aged between 25 and 34.
But, what's really helped us has been figuring out how we can grow within
different segments of millennials. For example, we started a wedding campaign where we give millennials getting married a slightly different experi-
