We live in an era of rapid growth in technology and a significant shift in customer behaviour. This is why flagship stores have to launch innovative concepts to connect and meet modern-day customer demands.
We understand that flagship shopping is more about providing customers with an experience that feels pleasurable and memorable to them on a personal level. This is usually called a customised shopping experience.
The current trend, which reveals growth in lifestyle flagship stores, tells us that they're making waves in customised shopping experiences for their diversified customer base. Of course, there's more to it than that! These brands are implementing progressive strategies that help them take the big win, and we love it. In this list of brands seeing growth, you'll find Canal Walk flagship stores that are getting bigger and better. Below, we'll tell you all about them and why we believe you need to grace them with your presence and perusal, with the possibility of purchasing a thing or two.
Woolworths, or Woolies as it's affectionately known by its customers, has been around since 1931. They've built a stellar reputation as a retailer that prioritises superior quality, exciting innovation and excellent value. Be it food, homeware or fashion and beauty, Woolworths doesn't compromise on quality products, services and shopping experience. The Woolworths in Canal Walk is one of the best flagship stores. Not only is it a full line modern flagship store that offers an incredible catalogue of the latest and trendiest products and services, but it's also the biggest store by size in the whole of Western Cape.
When you want to catch a breath from all the shopping, you have an opportunity to relax with a warm cuppa and treats at the sit-down WCafé. Recently, Woolies launched a same-day delivery online shopping app, DASH. This app is especially useful on days when you have a little too much in your hands but you need fresh food items. You can simply use DASH to order, and they will deliver straight to your door if you live within a 5km radius.
