We can't believe another NRF Big Show has come and gone! Our team packed their bags and left frigid Boston—for only slightly less frigid NYC—last week to join 38 thousand other retail professionals at the world's largest retail conference and expo. Through chatting with retailers, walking the EXPO floor, and ducking into sessions and workshops, we picked up on a lot of retail trends that are bound to shape 2019, from AI to click-to-brick. But there was one thing we could all agree on: At NRF, the phrase “retail is dead,” officially died. Retail is most definitely thriving.
