Amazon has always been at the forefront of the very best of retail and the Amazon Style Store is no exception. The innovative stores, with branches in Glendale, California and Columbus, Ohio, provide a unique shopping experience for customers that bridges their website to real-life experiences. The hybrid store is designed to cater to the fashion needs of customers. With the help of their digital storefront and technology, they are able to offer them a more personalized and convenient way of shopping. By using in-store commerce, shoppers are able to sift through the large store's inventory and find pieces to their taste in a manner of minutes instead of being forced to manually search through the store itself.
The Amazon Style Store is a physical store that uses technology to enhance the shopping experience. Customers can use the Amazon app to scan the QR codes on the items they like, and then have the items delivered to their dressing rooms. Once the customer is done browsing, they can visit their fitting room with all the pieces they selected on the app. The store also features state-of-the-art fitting room touchscreens which allow customers to see their selected items online and even request other sizes, colors, and products to be sent in while they are fitting.
But what does this mean for your brand?
The Amazon Style Store provides a blueprint for how you can enhance your customers' shopping experience. By using technology to personalize the shopping experience, you can make it more convenient for your customers to shop with you.
With ChatGenie In-Store Commerce, you can allow your customers to Scan-to-Order: all they would need to do is scan their selected product's QR code and order it online. They can then choose to pick it up at the counter to minimize contact and waiting times. While tech-driven shopping recommendations and high-tech fitting rooms may seem too intimidating now, you can still give your customers special treatment by giving them exclusives to shop via In-Store Commerce like early access to limited collections using the Scan-to-Get-Exclusives use case or give them vouchers with the Scan-To-Redeem use case. These conveniences aren't only limited to physical storefronts but also ticket-selling and food ordering at events like festivals and bazaars.
With the Amazon Style Store, Amazon has set a new standard for retailers. If you want to take your brand to the next level, it's time to start exploring the possibilities of technology in your retail strategy. By offering a personalized and convenient way of shopping, you can differentiate yourself from the competition and give your customers a more streamlined experience.
