Kate Spade is catering to a younger, more savvy shopper in order to drive online business back into their brick and mortar stores. In the Tokyo location for Kate Spade Saturday, the little sister store to Kate Spade New York, the retailer has been adding just one item each week to its inventory. Along with cappuccinos and interactive iPads to lengthen the time spent in-store, the weekly change of selection will help to bring in frequent shoppers who are looking to have the latest and greatest available. The experience looks to combine aspects of both online and in-store shopping for deeper brand immersion and will expand to the upcoming New York location of the brand shortly.
