Forbes | Fleet Feet’s New Concept Store Is A Sign Of Hope Amid The Retail Apocalypse

I recently published a new post on Forbes titled, “Fleet Feet’s New Concept Store Is A Sign Of Hope Amid The Retail Apocalypse”

A quick excerpt —
Last week Fleet Feet announced a new inventory-less concept store in Portland, Oregon. The store, aptly dubbed the “Fleet Feet Drop Shop,” will carry shoes for try-on in 35 of the most popular men’s and women’s shoe sizes, offer 3D foot scanning, and ship to customers in two days, free of charge.

It is a move that should be roundly applauded.
