The Future of Retail 💳

The Future of Retail

Over the past decade, growing online sales seem to have made physical retail obsolete. Or is it? Amazon and Apple are helping to evolve physical retail locations and it may be coming to your community soon!

  • 16 different styles of modals

  • 6 different primary buttons (which means we really had no primary button)
