For the second year, we asked 500 panelists their
feelings and perceptions regarding the state of brickand-
mortar retail. The results may surprise you.
Our research found that, although sales associates are generally viewed
neutrally, specific sectors such as consumer electronics stores and momand-
pop shops have a positive perception.
Consumers seek out sales associates who are educated and able to
help them make an informed purchase. Our results also confirmed prior
reporting1 into the growing fluidity between e-commerce and traditional
retail. More than 75 percent of our panelists reported frequently browsing
online, then purchasing the product in-store. Sales associates who are
educated about the products in their store are more likely to sell more. Brands
that ensure that their sales teams have the proper product knowledge
maximize the likelihood that consumers will purchase from them.
