Brands are unveiling new retail formats that feature sustainable and digital innovations to re-engage customers and bring them back into stores, with the dual purpose of meeting company goals, that include delivering immersive, digitally connected and carbon neutral experiences.
Burberry has unveiled a new ‘social retail store’ format in Shenzhen, China. The store is designed in partnership with Tencent Technology and uses a custom WeChat mini-program to reward users if they engage with exclusive perks and social currency for an in-app personal digital avatar.
Nike has launched its House of Innovation store format in Paris. The store format is known for its digitally connected customer experience, but the new store is also a prime example of how Nike is putting its ‘Move to Zero’ sustainability initiative into practice. The store has 85,000 kilograms of sustainable material woven into the design and fixtures, as well as being powered by a clean energy wind complex in Spain.
