In time for the Spring shopping season
Stores will list all of their stock on Udozi so people can quickly and easily find lifestyle and outdoor gear in shops near them, available to buy today
April 23rd 2014. Udozi has announced that Snow+Rock, Cycle Surgery and Runners Need are the latest high street retailers to come on board the local shopping platform’s ever growing database of reputable retailers. Hot off the heels of brands like Maplin and Evans Cycles, the latest additions to the Udozi portfolio have arrived in time to coincide with the official start of British Summer Time, helping outdoor fans find the perfect gear with which to enjoy the longer, lighter evenings.
All products in Snow+Rock, Runners Need and Cycle Surgery’s databases will be searchable on Udozi, adding to the list of over 3.3 million products that users can already find through Udozi at the click of a button.
There are currently over 170 independent and national retailers on Udozi.
Specific items can be located via the search tool on the Udozi mobile app or website, and consumers are then provided with additional information on stock availability, shop contact details, locations and opening times.
This news means that customers who use Udozi can now find specialist running, cycling, and ski equipment, as well technical outdoor clothing, whenever they want, with the assurance that what they need will be in the store they choose to visit.
Matthew Martin, Online Traffic Manager at Snow+Rock Group commented, “We pride ourselves on offering the highest standards of customer service across all of our stores, and part of this is helping make it easier for consumers to find what they want. In this rapidly changing marketplace, we are constantly evaluating everything that we do to ensure that we are offering consumers the best service possible. We have therefore partnered with Udozi to help ensure that our stock is easily accessible, so people can quickly find what they need even when they’re not in store. They can then head into our shops to pick it up – or test it out and speak to our highly trained sales staff before buying.”
Alan Gabbay, Founder of Udozi, said “We always see a boom in searches for certain items around key seasonal peaks. That’s why searches for skiing equipment, for example, rocketed around the Winter Olympics. At Udozi, we’re keen to work with retailers from across all sectors so that people can always find what they are looking for, however specific that item may be.”
Gabbay continues, “We’re delighted to welcome on board high street retailers that are as well respected and high quality as Snow+Rock, Runners Need and Cycle Surgery. At Udozi our mission is to help drive people back to the high street by helping them instantly find whatever they need, in any store, available to buy today. The addition of these great lifestyle stores bolsters our existing portfolio of retailers and ensures that consumers can find the best outdoor, sporting and lifestyle gear in their local area.”
So whether it is a pair of cycling shorts, some running shoes, or an adjustable walking pole, consumers can use Udozi to help them have a quicker, easier outing this summer.
