VLink

Hyper-local Shopping App Seeking to Combine Online Retail & Local Shopping

shopping retail app

VLink helped an online electronics company create an app that can go a long way toward helping local and regional retailers thrive in an age where better prices often are a few clicks away. The platform makes it easy for the shopper and the store to have an online dialog that leads to a value-add for the customer. The idea is to empower the retailer to leverage what it has and the big national online chain doesn’t have: Locality and flexibility.

Key Facts:

  • VLink worked with a major electronics, gadgets & appliances retailer, on an app that can help neutralize the price advantage enjoyed by online retailers.
  • The goal is for brick-and-mortar stores to take advantage of their locality and build relationships with prospects and ongoing customers.
  • Creativity is the key. What can a retailer offer a customer to make up for the premium they will pay? Some extra filters for a coffee machine? A couple of reams of paper with a copier purchase? Set up for a home gym?
  • People like to shop at stores. The mobile app, by letting the store and customer negotiate these perks, makes it more likely they will continue doing so.
