Coresight Research x Blue Yonder Retail Insights: US Retailers Prioritize Local Sourcing While Consumers Demand Faster Delivery

Coresight Research

What's Inside

Coresight Research and Blue Yonder conducted two surveys in early January 2021 to understand US retailers’ strategies around local sourcing and the impact of Covid-19 on US consumers’ shopping behaviors.

Based on our findings, we present five key retail insights in this report, covering the following topics:

  • Retailers’ sourcing changes implemented due to Covid-19
  • The benefits that retailers are seeking through local sourcing and nearshoring strategies
  • The degree to which retailers’ perceptions and strategies align with consumer priorities when shopping
  • Preferred shopping channels by consumers when purchasing clothing and footwear
  • The importance of retailers’ environmental sustainability and social impact initiatives to consumers in choosing where to shop for clothing and footwear

Click here to watch the on-demand webinar of the Coresight Research and Blue Yonder virtual mini conference, which brought together leaders from top retailers that have not only survived but thrived during the pandemic—including New Balance, Tractor Supply, Orvis and PVH Corp—to discuss the importance of an agile supply chain in today’s unpredictable retail environment.
