Procter & Gamble’s Old Spice brand will venture into brick and mortar on March 1 in Columbus, Ohio, introducing their first-ever barbershop. The physical space will serve as a digital content studio, retail store and test lab for Old Spice products.
Old Spice’s barbershop will work as a fully functioning studio to produce social and digital content. This will be a key part of Old Spice’s initiative to invite stylists with high-profile clients and host interactive customer experiences, such as men’s grooming tutorials.
Along with a retail hub to purchase Old Spice products, consumers will also be able to see 3D models with various haircuts and styles to request.
Old Spice’s newest brick-and-mortar endeavor serves as a chance to experiment in an experiential retail setting with a variety of offerings for consumers. The content production space is a unique feature for a barbershop, creating an opportunity to drive influencers and celebrities to the space.
Procter & Gamble is known to embrace strategies that meet ever-changing consumer demands. This approach provides an emphasis on innovation – a common theme in retail today.
