A Supply Chain Perspective
Businesses have recently faced unprecedented disruption.
- 90+ retailers have temporarily closed stores in the US.
- 190,000 retail store locations are estimated to be temporarily closed.
- 58% of US consumers have replaced in-person purchases with eCommerce since outbreak.
However, as the old saying goes, “this too shall pass.” While many are working remotely from the safety of their homes, now is the right time for retail businesses to begin planning for when conditions become safer and stores begin to reopen. We hope the following supply chain perspective will help retail businesses plan for success in the coming months.
