3) Invest in technology to improve the customer experience.
The future of retail is OMO, and retailers that merge the physical and digital worlds will be the most successful.
Magazine Luiza, also known as Magalu, is a leading entity in digitizing physical retail in Brazil, pushing the boundaries of Online-Merge-Offline (OMO) retail. The company’s unique ‘virtual stores’ concept in the 1990s set them up for digitization, and their strategic initiatives in recent years have further solidified their position as a tech-forward retailer. With a strong focus on growing product selection, enhancing user convenience, and improving the user experience, Magazine Luiza is well positioned to capitalize on the early stages of e-commerce adoption in Brazil.
