Pro Tip: The metaverse is easily one of the buzziest terms of this year, but the true question is what are the implications for the retail industry?

The metaverse allows for seamless integration between a virtual and physical world, which may spur new ways of attracting and transacting customers — and providing new types of product offerings that don’t exist in the “real” world.
