Consumers may be getting more comfortable with mcommerce, but that doesn’t mean in-store retail sales are suffering. In fact, when Gallup polled US consumers in March 2014, it found that, if anything, mobile technology had actually played a positive role when it came to driving in-person retail shopping.
Among US consumers polled, 22% said that mobile had increased their retail store trips, beating out those who said it decreased by 3 percentage points. But in the end, mobile hadn’t had too much of an influence on the amount of brick-and-mortar shopping by consumers.
