Essential Lessons from a Pandemic

In a new series of weekly Retail Tomorrow podcasts, Sterling Hawkins, co-CEO and co-founder of CART-The Center for Advancing Retail & Technology, and MNB "Content Guy" Kevin Coupe team up to speculate, prognosticate, and formulate visions of what tomorrow's retail landscape will look like post-coronavirus.

In this episode, Hawkins and Coupe look at how supermarket employees have established themselves as being 'essential' during a pandemic and what that means going forward … the growing movement toward making the wearing of a mask a requirement when entering a store … how restaurants and fast feeders are getting into the grocery game and the implications for the future … and how 'we're all in this together' means less to some retailers than others.
