The Changing World of Retail Demands a New Approach.
- Nobody can deny that the way in which we shop has changed tremendously over the last decade. And the way in which we will shop in future will change even more. The internet has been both a blessing and a curse for brands, distributors, manufacturers but most especially shops.
- Traditional and specialised shops are disappearing from city centres. City centre shops are dramatically losing their clientele.
- Without change, new designers and brands will find it difficult to find access to the retail market due to this decline.
So, we created CooCooShop.com, to put the "Shop back into Shopping"
