Adapting to Millenial Behavior

Retailers are adapting to chase millennials and Gen Zers.

Attracting millennials and Gen Zers could help retailers thrive in a difficult environment.

In a time when brick-and-mortar retail is struggling unlike ever before, these two younger demographics could breathe life into same store sales. Despite millennials' reputation for doing everything online, they're far more likely to make purchases offline, and they account for $600 billion worth of consumer spending in the US, Forbes reports.

Gen Zers also prefer to shop in-store and despite still being very young, between 7- and 22-years-old, they already account for another $44 billion in annual spending. If retailers can successfully become part of the shopping habits of millennials and Gen Zers, they may be able to thrive as these demographics come to represent an ever larger portion of all consumer spending.
