Interesting article regarding Gen Z's preference to shop in-store rather than online. Retailers will need to raise their "experience innovation" game in order to attract this next wave of shoppers.

Cristin Grogan's curator insight, April 16, 2013 10:13 AM

In new research published by Piper Jaffray, social media is becoming increasingly LESS important to teens. Additionally, it's important to notice that while many teens agree that social media has "an impact on their purchasing behavior" (53% of female teens and 52% of male teens), "teens prefer to shop in-store rather than online" (78% vs. 17% in case of female teens and 75% vs. 19% in case of males).

 

This could be due to the fact shopping for teens is often a social activity and a way to spend leisurely time with friends outside of the house and away from parents - they prefer the experience as opposed to the activity.  The article goes on to explore various trends in the mobile shopping world, as well as fashion, food/restaurants, video games as well as beauty and personal care where teens are increasing the amount of spending they are doing in this sector.

Ana Hazeu's curator insight, February 9, 2014 6:50 AM

Even though technology is becoming a priority in our daily lives, teens still prefer to shop "the old way", in-store.

However, they do shop a lote online as well, and for that,  Amazon is still the web leader by very far. In my opinion that's because of the variaty and reliability the shop has, and the lack of a physical store.
