We are in the midst of a retail revolution. Customers are demanding more experiences and unique offerings and the pop up showcases are changing this ‘shopping experience”. Customers no longer want the standard luxury shop that can be found everywhere in the world. A luxury shop where you can find the same concept everywhere and where nothing new happening. Rotating pop-ups encourage shoppers to keep coming back to see something different. As well as welcoming back the once regular shoppers, pop-up showcases are bringing in new clientele.
Pop Up Showcase is a revitalisation tool for retailers and an incredibly effective and low-cost method of marketing new brands or collection. Pop-up showcases are ‘democratising’ the jewellery and watch retail industry.
In the same time, the Pop-Up showcase model works extremely well with social media, allowing businesses to connect instantly with millennials and interact with them in real time; adding to the ‘cool factor’ of this model.
Pop-up showcases are rapidly becoming a mainstay of our modern jewellery and watch retail culture.
