Retail IT News: April in Review

Hello and welcome to April: In Review

April marks a time of warmer weather and the Easter holidays. This is a particularly special time of the year in 2021, as it is a time for optimism; between vaccines, the easing of lockdown and the latest slew of positive economic reports, retail looks set to bounce back in a big way. After a year’s worth of work to establish the frictionless store of the future, retailers continue to push forward, from ‘pay by plate’ gas stations to utilizing video platforms for live shopping.
