What’s the next big thing in retail? When you are caught up in the day-to-day operations of your retail business, it can be easy to feel left behind when trends emerge. Major players like Amazon and Whole Foods make big moves that send ripples through the retail sector, but that’s not always a bad thing for smaller businesses.

Take a deep dive beneath the retail news headlines to learn what direction the industry is heading and what that means for small and startup retail businesses.
