Bringing shoppers back has been difficult for plenty of brick-and-mortar retailers, and Target hopes that adding background music in its stores will be a recipe for success. The company first tested music in its stores back in 2011 at its Minnetonka Ridgedale location to see what shoppers and employees thought of it.
That's 43% more holiday hires than the retailer made in 2016.
This will allow Walmart to keep employees on-hand to help with the surge of shoppers without adding more workers through holiday hiring. Walmart notes that customers responded positively to its plan to skip out on holiday hiring in 2016. It’s possible that the system works better for the company because it gives customers access to employees that have worked for the store regularly and may be more helpful than seasonal hires.
