CONNECT ON

Shopest helps consumers discover the best nearby fashion retail as fast and as simple as online. By mapping independent stores online, Shopest makes them more visible to the shopper.

Shopest connects retailers with nearby shoppers in real time, allowing retailers to target shoppers before, during, and after their store visit, increasing footfall, revenue and loyalty.

The solution digitises the local shopping trip for clothes, shoes and accessories, making them easy to search for from home, desk or out and about.  Shopest helps shoppers find the best stores, products, and sales in their own city. Shopest helps bring the online tools in e-commerce to the offline boutique stores.

The problem:

Boutique stores remain undiscovered in the light of massive chain stores recognised around the world, without the opportunity to be found online via a larger platform a lot of shoppers do not know they exist or what they offer.

A shopper looking for a particular garment does not know where to find it, Shopest makes clothing items and boutique stores searchable.

Shopest targets customers who are independent, boutique and speciality store owners around the globe, with initial focus on London and Berlin.

Shoppers want what they want when they want it. It is also proven that they increasingly don’t care what channel they purchase those items from. In most instances, shoppers prefer to search online for a product first and then  go into a physical store to buy it. However, over 90% of sales are still made in-store. It has been proven that searching on their mobile first can lead to an increase of a customer’s in-store purchases by up to 300%, yet this isn’t being fully utilised.

The solution:

A platform that aggregates inventory and information on boutique stores making them more visible to the shoppers that are looking for their products. A community around the diversity of shopping.
