A distinctive aspect of Freshpik is its immersive shopping concepts – created by integrating digital and physical themes – that elevate the experience of shopping to a whole new plane. Many of these concepts are being implemented for the first time in India.
For instance, the wine store has a stocking of globally renowned wines, and also inbuilt tasting room where customers can try wines and beers of their choice, and even engage in appreciation and education sessions. The young ones can get a customised 3D printing done on chocolates at the Cadbury Purple room; or indulge themselves at the cheese sauce counter or the live salad and sandwiches counter. The chocoholics can savour the finest and best of chocolates from Godiva, Smoor, Cadbury and a host of finest farm-to-bar chocolate brands. The Candy Paradise is a treat for kids with M&M and 4700BC popcorn. They can also enjoy a serving of fresh milkshake and waffles at Epigamia’s Yogurt Bar or live popcorn and cotton candy pop-ups at 4700BC popcorn. At the staples counter, they can watch nut butter or nut milk being freshly prepared.
The modern customer’s perception of good food is evolving every day. And so is their benchmark for product quality, trust and shopping experience. Food shopping has moved from being a monotonous, dreary and transactional process to one that is full of fun, exploration, learning and discovery. It has become a process where one bonds with food, feels it with all the five senses – and the heart, and then takes a conscious buying decision.
“If good food is your thing, Freshpik is a paradise. It’s a playground to delight all our senses, touch, see, smell, hear, taste, enjoy. Come with your own wish-list of food. I promise, the discoveries will surprise you. Freshpik is a food experience, not just a store” said Damodar Mall, CEO Grocery Retail, Reliance Retail.
FRESHPIK offers ‘Omnichannel’ service complemented with digitally enriched in-store experience that features a ‘Personal Shopper’ where customers can do a quick self check-out and enjoy a smooth and hassle-free shopping trip. The FRESHPIK app will be available soon too.
Freshpik will be open from 11AM to 9:30PM on all days. All store members and delivery partners are strictly following COVID-safety protocols in the interest of the safety of customers and employees.
