It’s been a tough few months for the retail industry, with companies like JCPenney, Macy’s and Sears all announcing plans to close stores. But even in today’s increasingly ecommerce-focused retail environment, there are still plenty of reasons for consumers to shop in-store.
- Athletic wear giant Under Armour is inking an Old City-based startup in for an assist. The Baltimore-based sports apparel company’s retail locations saw upticks in how much time customers spent browsing shelves and how much money they spent at the register for stores where ChargeItSpot kiosks were available.
- “A powerless phone is unfashionable” is how charging station vendor ChargeItSpot sees the positioning of its services at retail. The company provides secure phone and device-charging kiosks for businesses and retailers, and monetizes consumers’ perpetual need for connectivity.
