The future of physical retail might be in the hands of Generation Z. Luckily for retailers, the demographic has a penchant for shopping in stores, according to a new Criteo report focused on the spending habits of the set.

In order to deliver a personalized experience on all touch points, brands and retailers need to employ a data-driven approach to connect Gen Z customers with unique, on-trend products.”
