Slowly but we would say mostly steadily, item-level RFID tagging, especially in soft goods, is gaining traction- if not quite yet critical mass. Macy's has said it will have all items in its stores tagged by the end of 2017. Target is rapidly moving ahead with its RFID tagging strategy and publicly touting its benefits. Kohl's is said to be working hard on RFID tests in its stores.
"RFID puts the power of accurate inventory in the power of hands of the people that need it the most, the educators and our guests," Lululemon's Aitken says.
