The desktop study investigates on the Gen-Y purchasing behaviour, the Gen Y shopping culture, and retail typologies to distinguish the effectiveness of Omni–Channel and Contextual Retail Design (CRD) in enhancing Gen Y. shopping experience. This study found that interactive omni-channel retail spaces and contextual shopping culture can be the key factors that influence Gen Y ultimate shopping behaviour. The CRD space programming typology would benefit designers in developing better sustainable retail typologies, whilst retailers could gain sustainable business economics especially in Malaysia.
