WOW Concept’s Experiential Ethos
Madrid’s WOW Concept launched in March 2022 as a totally reimagined shopping destination. Eight floors of immersive experiences include a neon-lit industrial gym, a fashion catwalk for exclusive shows, a 70s themed penthouse, three floors of fashion, a self-care lab, a gaming & tech-themed basement lined with a 3D-printed coral mural, and restaurants boasting Michelin-starred chefs. The retail destination is an experience down to the interior’s architecture, which was renovated by Carmelo Zapulla, a renowned current architect.
Environmental Encouragement to Innovate
WOW Concept is a product of the immense phase of disruptions, innovation and change that was catalyzed and accelerated by COVID’s outbreak in 2020. Exciting directions of technical innovation for retailers became solutions that could address real problems caused by supply chain difficulties, closed stores and tight restrictions. Consumers, forced to halt all in-person shopping activities and experiences, emerged from quarantines with shopping habits highly informed by the tools and conveniences of online shopping, and higher expectations for convenience.
Immersive Aesthetic Retail Experience
The most recent popularization of Metaverse, combined with increased expectations for a truly engaging experience of exploring and shopping in-person, is pushing the retail industry in the direction of creative and immersive experiences- coined as “phygital” retail. The WOW Concept is a pioneer in offering this sort of imaginative, immersive shopping experience, and has chosen Retail Pro Prism POS as the foundation for WOW Concept’s aesthetically-focused strategy. Leveraging the browser-based Retail Pro technology on sleek mobile devices, WOW Concept reinforces the brand’s futuristic vision and unleashes the customer experience form the checkout counter to happen at the poing og discovery on the store floor, with the sales associate smoothly transitioning from clienteling to completing the checkout. Retail Pro Prism’s customizable UI is editable with html down to every detail and allows WOW Concept to completely tailor the check-out experience to the inmersive aesthetic experience of each floor. Retail Pro Prism’s eassy compatibility with any mobile device also further enables an immersive, elevated customer experience.
The aim is to draw people into an ethereal experience that stimulates the imagination and gives expression to wonder and creativity in retail. As an innovative sotre, the WOW Concept of course offers click-and-collect, an offer wildly popularized by the pandemic.
