Traditional retail has been on a slow, but steady decline for probably the last decade. So much so that retailers were getting super creative to find a way to bring you into the store. In-store mini concerts, dining options like great coffee shops or pop-up kitchens, were becoming a trend in some of the higher-end stores. And then – you guessed it – COVID-19 hit and the way we used to shop is pretty much history.So, since you probably can’t go to that favourite store of yours, or maybe these days you’re less inclined to, what if there was a way to somehow bring that in-store magic to you, in the comfort of your home?Today’s guest, Oscar Sachs, is the CEO and co-founder of Salesfloor. Salesfloor empowers store associates to provide the personalized service customers love by connecting store associates to shoppers both in-store, and online.
