Pandemic Surprises, Disappointments, and Opportunities

GMDC Staff

This week, Sterling and Kevin are joined by Chris Walton, CEO and Founder of Omni Talk and Third Haus.

This weekly series of Retail Tomorrow podcasts features Sterling Hawkins, co-CEO and co-founder of CART-The Center for Advancing Retail & Technology, and MNB “Content Guy” Kevin Coupe teaming up to speculate, prognosticate, and formulate visions of what tomorrow’s retail landscape will look like post-coronavirus.

This week, Sterling and Kevin are joined by Chris Walton, CEO and Founder of Omni Talk: one of the fastest growing blogs in retail, and Third Haus: a retail technology lab and joint-venture with Xenia Retail, to talk about opportunities both embraced and squandered during the pandemic. Chris refers to the moment as a “retail reckoning” rather than as a “retail apocalypse”, and talks about both small and large companies’ approach to a changed marketplace. Plus, Chris, Sterling, and Kevin are examples of past prognostications that they got right, and admit to a few that haven’t worked out the way they expected.
