Shopping used to be pretty basic. See what you like, try it on, if you liked it, then you would buy it, but what if the whole experience became interactive?
You could learn a vast array of details on each of the products at the touch of a button, you can get advice from someone who is knowledgeable and engaged, and have fun while you are at it now a days, well you can if you drop into a Sportchek, specifically the 80,000 square foot flagship retail location at CF Sherway Gardens.
Last month we attended the launch of the company’s sixth flagship location and the third in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) – as part of its strategy to inspire Canadians while continuing to evolve and improve the sport retail experience.
The store offer’s the world’s best sport and activity brands and an extensive product selection in apparel, footwear, sports and fitness equipment, and accessories. Dedicated ‘specialty’ areas offer the best product offerings from Nike, Under Armour, New Balance, Fitbit, Oakley, The North Face, Adidas and Columbia.
The store features RFID tags in footwear that can be held in front of digital screens to see additional product benefits, mobile devices for staff to help find product for customers, and inspiring installations like 3D hologram boxes showcasing new and exciting products.
The new retail innovations and the SportChek in-store include:
New Balance Stride I.D. Experience Lab – a North American first, produces a 3D scan of a customer’s foot, along with a proper fit recommendation for the perfect shoe selection
Basketball Shop with more than 1,000 square feet of space dedicated to basketball products from Jordan, Nike, Under Armour and Adidas to take athletes from the game to off the court
Flagship Atmosphere Space bringing customers the best brands in the world for camping, hiking, climbing, and outdoor living.
Let’s be honest, nowadays if you are going to get me out to go shopping, you better offer something amazing, that I can’t live without, an experience all it’s own, or, if you are really creative, all of the above. Chek.
