Berlin, 27th September 2018 – home24, the leading pure-play home & living e-commerce platform in continental Europe and Brazil, opens a pop-up showroom at Sihlstrasse 3 in Zurich on 29th September. After entering the market with the online shop (www.home24.ch) in 2014, the pop-up is now the first showroom in Switzerland. After the lease expires at the beginning of 2019, the showroom will move to another attractive downtown location to be permanently present in Switzerland with this concept. The company is now represented with showrooms in all countries of the DACH region and thus underlines its position as the leading pure-play home & living e-commerce platform in continental Europe.

"In the home24 showrooms, we show a selected range of our products and support customers in their decision-making process," says Marc Appelhoff, Co-CEO of home24 SE. "We are delighted that from now on we will also be represented in Switzerland with our largest showroom. We see great potential in the Swiss market. With the new showroom located in the city centre of Zurich, we want to inspire even more customers for home24 and convince them to buy their desired products later on our website”.

On more than 800 square metres in the centre of Zurich, home24 offers its customers the opportunity to try out bestsellers, brand products and own brands directly. 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.ch.

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 from now on and establishes home24 as the first point to contact for online home & living. In addition to the newly opened showroom in Zurich, home24 currently operates eight other showrooms in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt am Main, Dusseldorf, Stuttgart and Vienna.
