Fast Five
Brought to you by :

Hello Omni Talk Fans! The hustle and bustle of holiday retail is upon us. Black Friday is just four days away!

And, while Anne and I love Black Friday just about as much as anyone, what really gets us going is thinking about what it will look like in the future.

So fresh off my article about that very topic, we have invited SES-imagotag’s Roy Horgan to join us for our next live discussion on LinkedIn – one we are calling, “What Stores Will Look Like In 2027.”

You can register to hear what Roy, Anne, and I have to say about the future of physical retail experiences by clicking here or on the big image at the top of this email.

Be careful out there,

-- Chris, Anne, and the entire Omni Talk team

P.S. 2022 OmniStar Raghu Mahadevan is one of the many people at 7-Eleven responsible for the company's newest Evolution Store concept.

Never one to let people rest on their laurels, Anne and I decided to stop by the Evolution Store on our recent trip to Dallas and to make it the next subject in our ongoing Store Tours video series.

You will get a sense of all the Evolution Store has to offer by clicking here or on the video thumbnail below.

And, while you are at it, give our podcast just below that with Raghu a listen, too. You will be glad you did!
