The faltering economy had restricted shoppers’ ability to indulge in exactly the brand they wanted, but over time a variety of alternatives have popped up to semi-satisfy those desires—sometimes even from the original brands themselves.

- J Crew Factory and Coach Factory
- NBA Courtside Virtual Reality
- Air BnB
