David Bowie Vans Old Skool Aladdin Sane, Retailers Can Learn A Thing Or Two From Vans

Sharing is caring!

I was driving my son back from football practice and gave my business partner Chris from ARCH a call to discuss the activities of the day. I told him about the David Bowie Vans I picked up and the circumstances that led me to actually purchase the shoe. In typical Chris’s fashion, he said

did you videotape the whole event? Man since you didn’t record it, you have to write a post about that on the site because that’s exactly what we’ve been talking about

Hence why i’m writing this post this morning and will keep it very short because of the redundancy of the topic at hand. I didn’t originally plan on picking up a pair of these vans when I went to my local mall. I was there to fulfill some orders from my website. But I decided to walk in the Vans’s store, and in it was a table featuring a very eye-catching presentation of the David Bowie Vans collection that completely consumed my attention  and consequently led me to buy a pair of these beauties. This Vans store has understood the fundamental idea of connecting with the consumer; I’m neither a skater nor  a fan of Vans’s products ( sneakers) so what do you think led me to grab a pair of the David Bowie Vans Old Skool named after his Aladdin Sane’s album. Certainly not David Bowie because I  neither listen to his music nor am I attracted to his character. So it is the layout of the products in this store, you see they had the entire collection on the store shelves but they made it a point to highlight the entire collection by setting up that table in the middle of the shop. They could’ve easily told the customers as they walked in that the David Bowie Vans collection was available but they didn’t do that because they didn’t have to, why? Because the table did all the talking that was needed.

This is something many retailers haven’t understood and wonder why they are having a hard time moving products out of their stores. I will invite you to grab a copy of Chris’s book that goes into further details on this issue and the possible solutions to solve it.
