Buy better. Wear longer is Levi’s call-to-action for Gen Z to reuse, repurpose and reduce their consumer footprint. A simple proposition with great potential for positive change. Levi’s will continue to make products that stand the test of time, and you keep wearing them for as long as possible.

Verizon Express is a new store format designed to ensure customers get what they want at the speed they desire. Carefully choreographed touchpoints throughout the store make it possible to do more with less. A new kiosk utilises a platform offering access to Verizon’s complete inventory, enabling a smaller retail footprint. Grab-and-go self-checkouts cut down on waiting.
