Berlin, 27th September 2018 - home24, the leading pure-play home & living e-commerce platform in continental Europe and Brazil, opens its new showroom in Berlin on 29th September. This means that home24 now has seven showrooms in Germany, two of them located in Berlin. The showroom in Berlin's Schloßstrasse 7-10 in the Karstadt department store is in one of Berlin's most frequented shopping streets - right next to the shopping mall Boulevard Berlin. On display across more than 325 square metres, customers from Berlin and Brandenburg can experience a wide range of bestsellers, branded products and private labels live on location.

"The opening of the showroom in such a prominent location in Berlin is of great importance for us," Marc Appelhoff said, Co-CEO of home24 SE. "For the first time, we are going into an existing department store with our showroom model. A high customer rate enables us to further strengthen the brand”. The location in Schloßstraße is also predestined for this, as the catchment area of the showroom Berlin-Steglitz comprises more than 300,000 households. The high number of walk-in customers at Berlin's largest retail location is combined with optimal connections to local and long-distance public transport.

In the Berlin-Steglitz showroom, home24 offers its customers the opportunity to try out a selected assortment directly from the online range. If required, qualified interior experts are available for individual, free interior design advice. Fabric and leather samples give an impression of colour and haptics and support the purchase decision. Customers can place their orders either directly in the showroom via an order terminal or later conveniently online at www.home24.com.

Showrooms are an integral part of home24's multi-channel strategy. By having a local presence, home24 can respond even more specifically to customer requirements and strengthen confidence in the brand. The personal dialogue with customers in the showrooms creates an additional incentive to order furniture online and establishes home24 as the first point to contact for online home & living. In addition to the newly opened showroom in Berlin-Steglitz, home24 currently operates eight other showrooms in Berlin-Mitte, Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt am Main, Dusseldorf, Stuttgart, Vienna and Zurich.

 

Notes to the editors:

The new showroom at Schloßstraße 7-10, 12163 Berlin is going to be open Mondays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. from 29th September 2018.
