Asset-Light Retail: Using Brand Power to Thrive

Asset-Light Retail: Using Brand Power to Thrive

In a COVID-19 world, retailers are looking to pivot quickly into new business concepts based on creating more value from existing assets.

But how can retail start to rethink traditional models and adopt an asset-light approach akin to brandcentric disruptors such as Uber, Airbnb and Deliveroo? How should retailers be using their brand power to build new, engaging and income-generating retail experiences for a curious generation?
