Department store locations were once considered the only means for D2C brands to expand into brick-and-mortar, but digitally native brands are now seeing great value in opening storefronts of their own. In fact, digitally native brands are set to open 850 brick-and-mortar stores within the next five years, according to a recent report on more than 100 top online retailers.
