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.
Continuing bad economic news has been leavened to some degree by some promising news on the healthcare front – a possible vaccine that could come faster than most people expected, and an experimental treatment that could reduce the number deaths related to the COVID-19 coronavirus.

What new consumer habits are being formed? How sustained will they be? And, what can/should retailers do to meet these needs and desires as they position themselves to be in the right place at the right time in the world of retail tomorrow.
