Our client, a leading retail landlord in the UK, was developing a new pop-up concept to encourage companies to experiment with temporary retail stores in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The aim of the study was to understand how ‘zeitgeisty’ and emerging brands view bricks-and-mortar retailing, what experience they had of setting up pop-up stores and kiosks in the past, and what they saw as the pain points, so that the client could refine their pop-up offering to make it as attractive as possible. We arranged for ten direct-to-consumer retailers and four traditional retailers to take part in 60-minute online interviews over the course of two weeks.
FieldworkHub has been a great research partner to me and my team. Caroline and Cornelius were incredibly proactive, helping us anticipate any issues that might come up and plan for how to handle them. Even though it did turn out to be a challenging project, things went smoothly because we were one step ahead. The team went above and beyond to help ensure our goals were met.
