Mobile and the retail revolution - Millward Brown
Mobile and the retail revolution

Shopping. It used to be simple and straightforward for South African consumers. A shopping spree involved travelling to a store or mall, looking at products, making a decision and then making a purchase. Possibly some time was spent perusing sales material in local newspapers or magazines beforehand, and you might have asked for some input from friends and family about the item to be purchased - the basic process was well established. But the digital revolution has changed the way South Africans shop and a primary example of this is the impact of the mobile phone.
