Scanomat delivers future retail coffee concept for innovation store designed to understand post-Covid world

As non-essential retail stores prepare for reopening, the question remains about what the future will hold for retail in the ‘new normal’.

The global pandemic has accelerated change in consumer behaviour and put ecommerce at the forefront of the retail experience. In fact, in a recent report about how the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the shift to online spending, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) reports that the proportion of non-essential retail sales that took place online during the first wave UK lockdown (March – August 2020) more than doubled versus the same period in 2019. 

With statistics like these, retailers need to work harder than ever to connect the dots between their digital and physical presence – and fast – if bricks and mortar retail is to thrive in the post-pandemic world.

Co-living & Coffee: Elevating the communal coffee experience with TopBrewer

Often described as a hybrid of a hotel and high-quality student accommodation, co-living brings the concept of communal living into the 21st century. Popular in cities, where real estate can be very expensive, co-living as a concept has been increasing in popularity in recent years, particularly amongst Millennials and Generation Z. Co-living is often described as the housing equivalent of coworking, bringing together likeminded individuals with similar interests into a shared house or apartment. Central to the co-living concept is creating a real community that goes beyond just being neighbours. The co-living experience includes a private bedroom, but places emphasis on communal spaces such as living areas, kitchens, gardens and amenities including gyms and cinema rooms. With community and collaboration at the heart of the co-living ethos, the communal spaces and amenities are arguably the most important feature. After all, a well decorated bedroom could be found in any type of shared living, but a well decorated bedroom with access to a cinema room and a house of like-minded people is something else.
