One of the biggest sports retailer in Europe is trying out a lot. So for example a new store concept named “Decathlon Connect” is tested exclusive in Munich placed in the Central Station since 2018. With only a couple of 100 sqm the store is small and spited into two. One is showing a small collection of impulse driven products and the other one is only for click & collect. 2019, they will start a same day delivery project.
You only can make it right, if you combine online and offline stocks and logistic processes.

Benefits for the retailer: Especially in small retail facilities you are limited in collection, but you can still have a good sales talk to your customers. If they order it now at your store and pic it up later the day or the goods will be delivered you are able to make a better turnover per sqm. The endless aisle system is very helpful.
