How To Create An In-Store Experience That Beats Out Amazon

Since it started as an online bookseller in 1994, Amazon has challenged and basically rewritten the rules of retail. Worth at least $356 billion today, Amazon is the leading e-retailer in the United States with close to $178 billion in 2017 net sales.
