“While online sales may be growing faster, it is key to make the in-store shopping experience personal for the consumer as in-store accounts for the lion’s share of apparel dollars,” said Maria Rugolo, apparel industry analyst, The NPD Group. “The fitting room is still an opportunity to make a personal connection with your consumer since it is still an integral part of the overall shopping experience.”
According to the report, in-store is also catching up to online with regards to convenience. Apparel shoppers have the option to buy-online-and-pick-up-in-store (BOPUS) or click-and-collect, which provides the accessibility of shopping online with the ability to see, feel, and try on an item in-store, if the consumer wants. BOPUS has been around for a while but most recently major brick-and-mortar retailers have enhanced the option by offering same-day or even quicker pick-up, curbside delivery, and other conveniences. Over the last 12 months, 21 percent of US adults answered ‘yes’ to buying apparel and footwear online and then picking it up in store, according to a survey from Civic Science for NPD’s Trend Tracker.
