2021 Retail Acquisitions

Retail companies go shopping …

It’s barely March yet we’ve already seen intriguing retail acquisitions this year, as:

– Amazon knows what Selz
– Walmart’s Thunderstruck
– ASOS wants its diverse assortment to be a HIIT.

(I’ll show myself out.)

TRENDS:

– Health & wellness
– Value & luxury tiers boom
– Big retailers connect with small brands

BIG PICTURE:

All these acquisitions show retailers and brands are filling strategic gaps (in their assortments and capabilities) to satisfy consumers’ desires and gain a competitive advantage.

What other retail acquisitions do you think we’ll see this year?
