    Epcot may be home to retail store of future - Orlando Sentinal, 1/18/07

    Epcot may be home to retail store of future

    Could a futurist retail store be the next big thing at Epcot? That's the hope of the National Retail Federation, which is kicking around the idea of establishing a store of the future at the Disney park. The concept store, dubbed "XO," now appears annually as a temporary pop-up boutique on the show floor at the trade group's annual convention in New York City.

    The boutique typically shows off the latest tech advancements -- such as this year's popular demo of an interactive mirror that lets customers try on clothes in front of friends online. Federation spokesman Scott Krugman said the trade group hasn't formally presented the pie-in-the-sky idea to Disney.

    I'm liking this idea. One of EPCOT's original purposes was to be showcasing the latest technology. Sadly I don't think they do enough of it. This would be a great addition in my opinion. However, I'm not familiar with their products besides the example of "dress up" mirror.

    Anyone now of this company and what else they have shown over the years?
