Online shopping giant Amazon has recently launched 10 pop-up stores in Manchester to provide a home for more than 100 small online businesses and help them easily connect with shoppers. The company also plans to open 3,000 Amazon Go grocery stores and fully automated supermarkets within three years.
One of the companies taking part in Manchester’s pop-up shop trial is Swifty Scooters. The company, which has been operating since 2011, admits it can benefit from having an offline presence.
“When it comes to scooters, a lot of the customers we have want to see what the product is like to ride”, says the company’s Lauren Siddall.
The firm does offer people access to its headquarters in Salford, but that doesn’t benefit from passing custom. “It’s not on the high street so we don’t get footfall as you do in the city centre. There’s an appeal in allowing our brand to expand across different markets”
