Amazon Style, Amazon’s brick-and-mortar clothing store, has been opened in the Los Angeles area at The Americana at Brand mall.  It joins Whole Foods, Amazon Go, and Amazon Fresh as new physical locations for Amazon. Amazon Style will sell clothing from Levi’s, Tommy Hilfiger, Champion, and other brands.  Amazon Style is outfitted with technology that is intended to improve the shopping experience and eliminate unnecessary steps.

Each piece of clothing inside the store has a QR code that customers can scan to create a list of items to try on in a fitting room or send directly to pick up for purchase, eliminating the need to carry a large number of items. Another feature is that customers can select clothing on Amazon.com, have it delivered to the store to try on, and return an item right there if it isn’t to their liking.  When you visit the store, employees will gather the clothes for the fitting room and notify you when they are ready for you to try on. Each fitting room also has a touchscreen monitor where customers can ask for more items to try on and/or rate their chosen items as they go. Customers can pay their bill with their Amazon account at the checkout.

One apparel retailer decided to improve its company’s performance by restructuring its supply chain.  It established over a half-dozen smaller fulfilment centers across the country.  The centers were situated in low-cost real estate areas.  This retailer cut online order costs by 15% per order by replicating a model more common in fast-moving, highly predictable consumer goods. The company also reduced working capital by removing seven weeks of inventory. Since it didn’t have to mark down items that were stranded in stores, it was able to sell more goods at full price.  When the retailer saw how well its new supply chain network was performing, it realised it had discovered a potential new business. Almost all of its competitors faced the same issue, where supply chain costs outpaced revenue growth.

The retailer then purchased two online logistics companies that had assisted it in establishing the network and found ways to aggregate orders from various businesses to mitigate parcel costs. The net result is a savings of $1 per order, which is significant for mid – market retailers.  This retailer applied its new knowledge to a cooperative model that helps scale benefits and inventory balancing that only the largest big-box retailers can achieve.  The retailer developed the model further with technology, robotics, and analytics to provide “supply chain as a service” to competitors.  Innovative retailers, such as this one, are turning a fixed-cost, high-capital challenge into a technology-based growth opportunity.
