This Isn’t Your Parents Holiday Season

Fortune touches upon how Holiday Season shopping is a bit different to times gone by:

This suggests a shift in the way that Americans shop. In the past, retailers had to hire more people to work cash registers and sales floors; Amazon’s holiday workers will be fulfilling warehouse roles in fulfillment and sorting facilities.

Yes, we still love to browse stores during a time when many of us take a break to enjoy family-time. And yet, people browsing are increasingly doing the buying part online. As the article suggests, that means more orders in the carts of online retailers and less in the carts of physical stores unless the latter is on top of multi-channel.

All of this means getting your warehouse into order has never been more important.
