In the entire shopping process – from product advertising to possible exchange – digital options now play an essential role for German consumers. Nevertheless, brick-and-mortar retail is still the most popular place to make purchases. This is the result of a recent study by the international auditing and consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the results of which have just been published.34 percent of those surveyed said that they shop in stationary shops at least once a week. 23 percent used smartphones, 17 percent used a PC and 14 percent a tablet. Seven percent stated that they shop in virtual reality at least once a week. For many consumers, digital offers have become indispensable along the entire customer journey. Almost half of the participants in the study „often“ or „almost always“ use their smartphones to research products.What does this mean for retailers? it is clearly a matter of a close, seamless integration of all sales channels and the maximum integration of digital technologies. The customers are far enough along in their experience. The older ones, who make up the bulk of the population, are still partly behind, but the behaviour of the younger ones is decisive for the future. The so-called old are always imitating the young. So take heart!
