Retail phone charging station provider ChargeItSpot announces an exclusive partnership with iconic luxury department store Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan. Arriving just in time for the holidays, the kiosks will offer customers complimentary, secure cell phone charging while they shop.

NEW YORK (PRWEB) DECEMBER 4, 2014 — ChargeItSpot’s complimentary cell phone charging stations make their luxury retail debut on the 5th floor of renowned Manhattan department store Bergdorf Goodman. The innovative startup has quickly become the leading manufacturer of cell phone charging kiosks for retail stores across North America.

“Bergdorf Goodman has always adopted a forward-thinking approach to fashion,” says Agatha Wirth, VP of Operations and Strategic Initiatives at Bergdorf Goodman. “And now we’re looking to cutting-edge retail technology, like ChargeItSpot, to help enhance our customer service and set the gold standard for exceptional retail experiences.”

The high tech, interactive phone charging stations have already been installed in major retailers like Whole Foods, Urban Outfitters and RadioShack, but ChargeItSpot’s new partnership with Bergdorf marks its first foray into the luxury retail landscape. “It’s a privilege to collaborate with such a prestigious, historic department store,” says ChargeItSpot founder and CEO Douglas Baldasare. “Our cell phone charging stations are not only incredibly practical, they also trigger an unexpected sense of wonder and delight – elevating the customer’s entire shopping experience.”

With third party research indicating that ChargeItSpot users stay twice as long in stores and spend 29% more at the register than their non-phone-charging counterparts, the kiosks are proving to be a promising solution for struggling retailers. Brick-and-mortar stores, facing a growing migration of customers to digital shopping channels, are now expected to create a positive in-store experience and ChargeItSpot’s cell phone kiosks may just be the added value traditional retailers can bring to their stores this holiday season.
