“We don’t know what the first half — or much less, the second half — of 2021 is going to look like, but focusing on, ‘how can I create an experience for the consumer that might not be walking in my store’ and really investing in that and committing to what your brand represents there is going to pay dividends whether COVID continues to have us quarantined in Q3–Q4 of 2021 or not.”
– Sean Ryan, vice president of Digital Strategy, The Informed Engagement Network, and former digital lead for Target and JCPenney
