Separating the Hype from Reality with the Industry’s Hottest Buzzword

Top 500 retailers hope to outmaneuver by leveraging storefront real estate.

Sales on now account for about a third of all e-commerce transactions in the U.S. Major retail chains are reacting to this by pushing omnichannel initiatives that leverage a combination of brick-and-mortar stores, the web and mobile commerce properties to their benefit—something Amazon can't do, at least not yet. Is this omnichannel strategy attracting new shoppers, improving sales and driving profits? Internet Retailer's Special Report, The Omnichannel Winners of the Top 500, separates the winners and the losers in omnichannel retailing. In its 50 pages, the Report divulges the secrets of the most effective store-based retailers, offers reasons why a slew of fast-growing online retailers are switching up their business models to open physical stores, and details, via an exclusive survey, what consumers really think about the omnichannel shopping experience.
