1. Wegmans – The Grocery Store you cannot leave

Wegmans is a grocery store in Brooklyn that has an excellent “open-air market design”, an extreme variety of delicious food, and employees who love their job. But the main thing that makes Wegmans stand out is how they make people really enjoy spending their money and time here. You will understand the day you are spellbound by watching their distracting design of different grocery items.

2. Nordstroms – Fashion flagship store with food delivery
Who could imagine a fashion flagship store including a Face Gym? At Nordstroms 320,000 square feet divided into 7 floors, you can visit a personal stylist, book treatments of all kinds and collect online orders 24/7. If you are hungry, there are a new food concept to explore on every floor. Visit their gluten free donut shop, enjoy a dinner at their fine-dine restaurant or order a drink in their martini bar. Make sure you don’t forget to do your shopping.

3. IKEA planning studio – The giant furniture store

IKEA planning studio is in many ways the opposite of how we normally see IKEA. It´s small, city located and not much about upsell. Instead you can find a lot of human services, home delivery options and visit the smart planned living areas, designed for New Yorkers. A smooth flirt to the urban people who thought the previous IKEA concept was unavailable.

4. Amazon Go – A retail innovation store

If you are within retail, the Amazon Go concept has probably already sparked your interest. Some say these checkout-free hi-tech stores are costly and only PR, others say it is the future. Anyhow it’s a great experience for the stressed New Yorker who easily can do their smaller shopping with less friction. And for us curious retail-tech nerds, of course.
