Yet this massive industry is facing sizable challenges. For starters, the global economy continues to struggle because consumers, generally, have less discretionary income and are saving more. The "Age of E-tailing," or to express the concept in its leading brand-specific form, "The Age of Amazon," is placing a vast multitude of items that at one time were available only in retail stores at the fingertips of consumers, on any Web-enabled device, at lower prices and with minimal wait times to receive the merchandise. If retailers are to survive, they must find ways to engage with shoppers, or, at minimum, to better understand what shoppers want.
