Decathlon and Barclaycard announce Click and Connect trial
Barclaycard has partnered with Decathlon to create a Click and Collect service for hiking fans at the retailer’s Surrey Quays store in London.
With hiking products being among the most popular items that Decathlon shoppers purchase via Click & Collect, Barclaycard is enabling people to try them out in conditions that mimic Mount Snowdon’s temperature etc. This will be available between 20th and 23rd August.
“We have seen a real increase in the number of shoppers opting to use Click & Collect since 2017 and are constantly looking at ways to make the overall shopping experience better for our customers. That’s why we are excited to collaborate with Barclaycard on this ‘Click & Connect’ trial – to further encourage shoppers into our stores so they can experience everything it has to offer,” says Christian Baggaley, Head of Operations at Decathlon UK.
“Hiking products are really popular with our shoppers and so we’ll be hosting the microclimate experience at our Surrey Quays store to enable shoppers to test items they’ve ordered through Click & Collect, in the same mountainous temperatures they will experience on their hike.”
