Palm Desert, Calif. (PRWEB) November 17, 2014
CPO Kids & Gadgets, LLC. today announced its ribbon cutting opening ceremony date and time, are now confirmed for 4 p.m. on Tuesday, November 18, 2014. The Palm Desert Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Westfield Palm Desert, has embraced the CPOK&G concept. A group of local leaders, fellow tenants, Westfield, Palm Desert Landlords, and the Palm Desert Chamber of Commerce and their invitees will gather to commemorate the symbolic ribbon cutting gesture for not only a new flagship store, but towards progression in “learning retail” experiences and CPOK&G’s unique concept.
“CPO Gadgets feels the best way to learn from consumers is not from what you can get them to buy, but instead, an appreciation of the experience and lifestyle utility they would like to derive from yours’ and other’s products,” said Charles Ogilvie, CEO, CPO Kids & Gadgets, LLC.
Products are out of boxes in many cases and two-way learning is encouraged. During November and December, CPO Kids & Gadgets js planning a series of events and giveaways to make the holiday season even more fun. In its tradition of fun and education, CPO Kids & Gadgets, LLC has worked a special promotional deal to include a huge floor keyboard --- something akin to the movie “Big”, where Tom Hanks enjoys chopsticks – a surefire way to engage through hands-on-play.
Through the Palm Desert Chamber of Commerce, CPO Kids & Gadgets, LLC has donated some exciting toys to Marine families at the nearby 29 Palms Marine Base. CPO Kids is also in discussions with Westfield management about hosting Marine family baby showers in Westfield Palm Desert, providing a unique venue for such special occasions.
“We certainly feel that both the Palm Desert Chamber and Westfield Palm Desert have embraced the idea of developing Palm Desert in many ways, and we are very proud to be members and tenants,” said Charles Ogilvie, CEO CPO Kids & Gadgets, LLC.
The CPOK&G concept store has 3 primary areas all designed to focus on interaction and both direct and in-direct customer feedback:
(1) “0-1 Baby Room” which houses great gifts for the 0-1 infant market;
(2) a “Toddler & Kids - Adventure Room” which houses everything from toddler riding toys, apparel to innovative learning games and gift ideas; and
(3) a “Big Kids: Gadget Gallery”. What gadgets will be there? one might ask – everything is an experiment and the product mix will change based on feedback and customer engagement. You’ll have to come and see to understand the process or get involved and become part of the process!
CPO Kids & Gadgets, LLC. was pleased to see confirmation in PSFK’s Latest Future of Retail Trends Report 2015 and hear feedback on retail techniques being adopted to enhance consumer engagement that directly support the validity of CPOK&G’s strategy.
“Generally, it is tough and takes big thinking to try something new in retail,” said Charles Ogilvie, CEO CPO Kids & Gadgets, LLC., “however what might appear a risky trial or foray, is proving more mainstream. The early risk-takers who saw mobile, in-store analytics, and product engagement awareness as areas to explore are now motivated to refine their experiments. Corporations who execute this year (versus staying in 'study mode') will reap the rewards swiftly.”
CPO Kids & Gadgets, LLC, without the stamina nor stigma of major legacy retailers is able to make a run at agility in the unique niche pairing of Kids & Gadgets.
