Related: Sephora Is Experimenting With A Boutique Format To Prepare For The Retail ApocalypseSephora has always been a leader in immersive retail experiences: It was the first makeup retailer that allowed customers to sample every single product to their hearts’ content. Continuing with this philosophy, Sephora says in a statement that it uses cost-effective building materials so it can invest more in “client centric experiences, services, and employee development.”
And finally, with this expansion, Sephora is focusing on sustainability, an issue that is increasingly important to consumers. These stores will run on 100% renewable energy, which will help to reduce its overall energy consumption and its greenhouse gas emissions.
The World’s Largest Dam, The Itaipu Dam Provides Both Brazil & Paraguay With Electricity. Located at the border of Paraguay and Brazil, the Itaipu dam spans an impressive 7,919 metres across and is almost 200 metres tall. The Itaipu dam provides Paraguay with 76% of the country’s electricity while also generating 17% of Brazil’s energy needs every year.
So the bottom line is that retail is not dead. It can still be a successful business model, as long as retailers continue to innovate the in-store experience and make shopping fun for customers.
