Every aspect of the retail business model must reflect customer priorities and values. No facet of the model can remain unchanged or at least unchallenged. Propositions must deliver value to the target customer groups, the organisation must connect with the customer where he/she chooses, store formats must reflect the core customer shopping mission(s), store labour must deliver the service the customer values. Every element of the retail business model needs to be viewed through a pair of customer oriented spectacles.
