9) What role of physical stores in Bonkers Corner's strategy in the age of e-commerce?

The role of physical stores in Bonkers Corner's strategy in the age of e-commerce is pivotal. While we have established a robust online presence, we recognized the importance of complementing it with brick-and-mortar stores to bolster our expansion efforts.

Physical stores are instrumental as they offer customers a tangible and immersive brand experience that cannot be replicated online. They serve as touch points where customers can interact with our products, receive personalized assistance, and engage with our brand on a deeper level.
