Millennials are bold and forward-thinking, breaking barriers and traditions and changing the face of consumerism. With the world quite literally at their fingertips, millennials’ decision-making is very different from gen-x and baby boomers. This is why so many industries that were once extremely mainstream are now slowly dying.
With so many more options available due to E-commerce, online dating, and education as well as low-cost airlines, millennials are able to experience life in a completely different way to previous generations. As a generation of conscious consumers, who ask questions before they buy, the old way of life often doesn’t hold up to their scrutiny.
This list compiles some of the once-popular industries that millennials have decided are just not for them. Perhaps this is the key to a more sustainable future, but there will certainly be casualties along the way.
