The shops of the future

A thing occurred to me after reading what I'd written over on Transport Blog. What I'd done was see something in W H Smith but it had never occurred to me that I'd ever do anything other than buy it on Amazon. I presume this sort of thinking applies to rather a lot of people. If so, then it would seem that the shop as we know it is doomed. But if that is the case then how are we to encounter those products that we want to see in the flesh before we buy? Could the shop of the future turn out to be a Tupperware party?



Look for the Amazon Shop in major malls and central business districts before the decade is done.
