position to part with their discretionary dollars as job
and income growth occurs, which he expects to be the
case over the next couple of years. "One wild card that
could boost spending even more is tax cuts [which
have been proposed by the Trump administration],
but we don't have a lot of certainty about how much
we'll see taxes reduced ... We can't forecast any hard
numbers until the legislation is confirmed."
FOCUS ON FUNDAMENTALS
Although the retail industry faces a lot of uncertainty
with regards to which formats will prove sustainable
and successful over time, the fact remains that brickand-mortar is still customers' preferred method to
purchase goods. Where retailers need to focus, Soffe
says, is on experience and engagement, whether
online or in physical stores. "If a brand can engage the
consumer, their chances of selling to them are much
higher." Loyal customers shop with the brands they
know and trust enough to give them the best experience, leading them to return time and time again. x
