A new consumer survey by Deloitte sheds light on just how fast smartphones are impacting the retail scene.
By 2016, smartphones will influence $689 billion or 19 percent of total U.S. store sales, according to results of the survey. Direct mobile commerce sales will surpass $30 billion by then, according to industry estimates.
This year, 5.1 percent of total retail sales, or $159 billion in sales, will be influenced by mobile devices, which enable consumers to conduct product research, compare prices and purchase online. Direct mobile commerce sales are estimated at $12 billion for 2012.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
