The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands has launched a digital platform allowing shoppers to browse and reserve online exclusive lines not available in stores outside its mall.
The new O2O initiative not only helps the mall promote its exclusivity and premium luxury positioning, it drives foot traffic offline into the mall.
Shoppers can reserve the Shoppes-exclusive items – like the Kwanpen Men’s Boutique Crocodile leather briefcase pictured above – for 48 hours before heading to the physical boutiques to purchase the goods.
The Shoppes team says the online service is another initiative to showcase the mall’s unmatched collection of luxury offerings. Shoppers who use the free service are also in for treats and seasonal privileges upon purchasing in-store, including attractive shopping rewards, complimentary day parking, as well as be the first ones to receive firsthand updates on the newest limited edition products debuting at The Shoppes.
John Postle, VP of retail with Marina Bay Sands, said: “We are always looking for ways to engage our shoppers while leveraging existing digital platforms to showcase product offerings that set us apart. Through this service, we want to bring convenience to our customers and make them feel special when they arrive at their destination, knowing that their item is waiting for them.”
For its launch, the website will feature a selection of luxury bags from international brands including Bally, Brioni, Kwanpen Men’s Boutique, Roberto Cavalli, Salon by Surrender, Salvatore Ferragamo and Zilli.
To celebrate the launch of the service, shoppers will receive a S$100 shopping voucher on top of complimentary parking, upon purchase of their reserved item from now until August 31.
