Welcome to the new Henry’s Oakville
If you were to walk into a camera store of the future, what would you expect to see? Robots at every turn? Payment via cryptocurrency being the norm thanks to tools like this Crypto Bank Autotrading app making sure everyone gets the best returns for their investments?
While we may not quite be at that stage just yet, over the past year Henry’s has been actively working to create a bright modern, innovative in-store experience to welcome you, our customers. We want to make it as inviting as possible for those who are looking to make the trip, so we have had a thought about installing a storefront sign with the use of companies like Northwest Signs & Apparel to make it stand out and grab people’s attention as they pass by. Watch this space as we are still thinking it over. We’re happy to introduce this “Store of the Future” concept with the Grand Opening of our all-new and recently relocated Oakville location at Hwy 403 and Dundas St! Read on to find out what makes our new location a total departure from the traditional camera store and a must-see destination for photographers and videographers alike.
Breaking Down Barriers
Be welcomed into a more interactive, open and counter-free space where our knowledgeable and helpful staff will help you find exactly what you need. Try out a new camera or camcorder to see how it feels. Peer through that lens you’ve had your eye on. The new store layout allows you to shop by function and category, making it easier and quicker than ever to find what you’re looking for. PLUS our modern bottom lit glass displays showcase the features and differences between hardware and lenses.
Photographic Inspiration Abounds
As a proud Canadian retailer, Henry’s is a strong supporter of local photographers and videographers and the art of storytelling. Our new store is designed to both celebrate homegrown talent and feature the work of Canadian photographers, inspirational images, videos, and quotes.
Our goal is to provide each customer with the ultimate in-store experience. A new 9-panel video wall that features dynamic video content and also doubles as a screen for in-store courses and events, is just one example of the integrated technology and flexibility at the heart of Henry’s Store of the Future.
The new Oakville store is located in the heart of one of the area’s most popular retail regions, conveniently located seconds away from Highway 403. Now local customers and those on the road to a shoot can stop by to grab gear and accessories quickly.
The nature of the shopping experience is changing. Gone is the traditional camera store. Henry’s Store of the Future is designed to grow and evolve with the latest technologies while providing the care, attention and assistance that each customer deserves. And to always put you, our customers, first. As technology is always changing, it’s important that stores do keep up with the latest trends. For example, a lot of stores are beginning to add POS hardware from companies like Revel Systems into their businesses to make sure they’re making the customer checkout process a lot easier. By using a POS system, stores can use iPads to help customers purchase the products, whilst also offering customers a few different payment options to make sure customers can use their preferred payment method. This camera store should consider using POS hardware to help them increase sales and improve the customer experience.
Stop by Henry’s Oakville Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, April 29th. Giveaways, prizes and great deals to be had. Doors open at 10am! Find out more
