  1. Totally agree Victoria’s Secret has not seized the opportunity to re-invent the store experience. Customers are craving a more emotional, experiential store experience and VS has a huge advantage here over smaller competitors gaining market share. You guys, being the store of the future visionaries that you are, bring up some compelling ideas! So many ways to make the store and digital experience more of a customer draw.

    This is part of a bigger miss that is sad for such a loved power brand. There have been many ways over the last few years that they have moved away from a customer first mindset. Les Wexner has always been on the forefront of understanding the importance of the customer– “knowing her like your best friend”. This has happened at a time when evolving is critical for retailers. There is still so much power in the VS brand. I am curious to see what they do next.
