e-commerce service has been available in the Swedish market since 2009.
As a result of the launch of e-commerce services for Brothers and JC, in addition to Polarn O. Pyret's existing service, all three business areas in the RNB Group now offer e-commerce.
"Launching e-commerce services for Brothers and JC is an important step in RNB's development. We are now increasing accessibility and offering our customers more choice. At the same time, we are satisfying customer demand and helping customers prepare for in-store purchases by seeing the garments and finding inspiration on the web before visiting our stores," says Magnus Håkansson, President and CEO of RNB Retail and Brands.
When developing e-commerce stores for JC and Brothers, the focus has been on offering a broad and attractive range in a retail environment that is easy to shop in, offers inspiration and fashion and styling advice. If the customer wants to find inspiration online and then visit the store, it is easy to see whether a store has the garment in stock, find directions to the store and view its contact details.
"Our new e-commerce stores offer customers an attractive shopping experience and enable purchasing in locations where there are no physical stores. Launching e-commerce for JC, and for Brothers next week, is vital for the RNB Group since we see major growth potential in this segment. E-commerce stores are a key channel for us since e-commerce is predicted to grow substantially," says Magnus Håkansson.
