Japan's iconic department store
Established in 1953, Parco is a celebrated Japanese department store chain. With 18 stores in prime shopping districts, it's a cultural icon and retail giant.
Parco aims to increase sales by using omnichannel strategies, such as integrating in-store sales and the digital world.
A notable feature of Parco is its multi-floor retail format, where each floor is dedicated to specific product categories and services. Parco aims to achieve market expansion by leveraging digitalisation across all floors effectively.
The department stores are equipped with smart digital in-store technology to make the shopping experience smoother and more inspiring. Right from the storefronts, the tone is set with captivating messages. Navigating the multi-level stores is a breeze with interactive touchscreens and large floor modules on every floor.
While riding the escalators, the digital displays become part of the interior, elegantly showcasing products and highlighting upcoming events. Feeling hungry? With digital in-store elements, it’s easy to explore the offerings of all the cafes, restaurants, and food courts, and discover which place piques the interest. Parco collaborates with artists and cultural organizations to create a unique shopping experience and digital in-store is a perfect way to spotlight upcoming events.
Wherever customers are in the shopping centre, digital elements are available for inspiration and guidance.
