SHANGHAI, China‐YONEX SPORTS (CHINA) Co., Ltd., the Chinese subsidiary of Yonex Co., Ltd., opened its first showroom, the Yonex Shanghai Showroom, in Huaihai Road, one of the major shopping areas, on Saturday, August 5.
A PLACE WHERE CUSTOMERS CAN EXPERIENCE THE YONEX BRAND
The Yonex Shanghai Showroom aims to share Yonex’s commitment to ‘Craftsmanship and Innovation’. It will serve as a direct touchpoint to the customers where Yonex can share its brand values through product stories and services. The space will also act as an exchange hub that allows Yonex to connect with customers and understand their needs, providing valuable feedback for product development, and ultimately creating a better sports experience for everyone.
A REGIONAL HUB, FROM SHANGHAI TO ASIA
Yonex has been collaborating with retail partners across China to deliver sporting goods and the joy of sports to anyone that is eager to play sport. With China being the world’s largest market for badminton, and the Chinese sports market seeing a major boost in recent years due to growing health awareness, Yonex Sports saw strong benefits in providing directly-owned brand presence in a central metropolis that is Shanghai. This marks the first overseas showroom for the Japanese company, acting as a Yonex tentpole in Asia that will spread the brand, its values and its products.
EXPERIENCES AND SERVICES UNIQUE TO THE NEW SHOWROOM
The 550-square-meter store offers a broad product lineup in badminton, tennis, golf, and snowboarding, and customers can learn about Yonex's history in craftsmanship and continued commitment to technology. The showroom will offer customized services such as racquet stringing by the Yonex Stringing Team, shoe customization, apparel customizations, and more. Immersive experience courts allow visitors to try badminton and tennis products in a digital space which combines virtual imagery with actual physical play. These immersive experiences are aimed at providing a chance to test product, but also experience badminton and tennis in a new light. The showroom will also act as an event space, hosting live commerce activities and events featuring world-class athletes.
