Kipling Unveils Interactive Retail Concept At Disney Springs

Personalization – a key feature at Kipling in Disney Springs – is emerging as a new trend in retail. Centrally located in the store will be an area dedicated to inspiring “make it your own” style options, such as monogramming and adorning one’s new purchase with a Kipling iconic monkey keychain, playful patches, buttons, and more. This service is complimentary with any in-store Kipling purchase with proof of purchase.

A digital activation unique to Kipling in Disney Springs is a fun photo booth that has been built into the store’s design and will engage Kipling fans to “snap and share” their customized graphics interchange format photos (GIFs) onto their social channels for a chance to win fun prizes throughout the year and to be featured on Kipling North America’s social media pages.

Adding to the digital experience in-store and beyond is Kipling’s launch of retail bots. Kipling will use messenger technology to chat live with its digital-savvy visitors on their smart phones and with Qr Codes thoughtfully placed throughout the retail space. Scanning a barcode will offer the visitor style suggestions, Kipling fun facts and instant offers. Meanwhile, Kipling fans from afar can learn the latest Kipling news, upcoming retail events in their area, and more.

Opening Event – Kipling in Disney Springs is celebrating the launch of its interactive retail space Friday, May 20 through Sunday, May 22 offering visitors refreshments, a tour of the space and each activation area, and a complimentary Kipling monkey keychain with any purchase of $100 or more while supplies last.
