New loyalty app meets with instant success for Geek Retreat franchisees

This spring sees the start of a really, exciting new development in the Geek Retreat franchise: the launch of their loyalty app!

Designed to encourage new collectors and players to come and enjoy their hobbies in-store, as well as reward veteran Geeks, the app offers customers digital discounts vouchers on transactions and a number of other benefits. Since launch, over three thousand customers have signed up, and is already seeing 10s of thousands of transactions, showing the new app is already resonating with customers and incentivising them to spend more time and money in stores.

For you as a potential Geek Retreat business owner, this app has the potential to bring you all the same benefits as loyalty schemes you’ll find with any major retailer: discounts, reward schemes, and the ability to promote directly to your most avid customers. It’s all part of positioning your store as the best value destination to buy and play all the most popular games, such as Pokémon, Lorcana and Dungeons & Dragons.

However, it is also so much more!

There’s one big difference with the Geek Retreat app compared to other retailer loyalty apps, one which can really help you stand out from the crowd. The app is also designed to tap straight into the extraordinary sense of community and togetherness which already sets Geek Retreat stores apart.

It enhances the connection and togetherness all customers feel when they become part of their local Geek Retreat community. By adding this new layer of engagement, more and more people can enjoy the unique culture which every store offers as a welcoming and inclusive environment where people can enjoy their favourite pastimes.

“Having looked at a number of different franchise options, we chose Geek Retreat because it supports entrepreneurialism and is embracing innovation with initiatives like the app. Having worked in the retail sector for some time and recognising the challenges facing the high street, the brand’s unique proposition as a store, meeting venue and café also really appealed.” – Raja, Geek Retreat Dudley

Are you ready to tap into this same magic with your own Geek Retreat store?

The new app is just the latest innovation in a business model which is designed with your success in mind. Along with Geek Retreat’s proven business model, fantastic branding, and stellar reputation, this really is an unmissable opportunity to own your own exciting and dynamic store in the heart of your community.

If you’re ready to learn more, then just get in touch. I am happy to answer any questions you have and help you learn how a Geek Retreat franchise can work for you.
