For many of us, the COVID-19 pandemic curtailed travel in 2020. And for a time, retailers shifted their focus to deal with the pandemic's immediate challenges.

However, since the end of summer we have seen more new developments. These 50 stores should be on your must-see list when global travel opens up again. They represent a variety of formats - food retail, drugstores, foodservice - and bring innovation to life.

Here’s a snapshot of five which made our list for the way in which they are driving innovation across the sector:

  • Aldi, Shanghai, China
  • Grupo Éxito Wow, Laureles, Colombia
  • Pyaterochka, Moscow, Russia 
  • Asda, Leeds, UK 
  • Walmart, Elm Springs, USA

The free snapshot of these five stores is below.
