Eataly Chicago Retail Innovation: Revolutionizing Shopping

In the dynamic realm of retail, Eataly Chicago stands as a shining example of innovation, perfectly embodying the 'Made in Italy' ethos. Our focus at Eataly Chicago has always been on enhancing the shopping experience, not just for our customers but also for our dedicated staff. This approach is especially significant for our wine-loving clientele, who value authenticity and quality above all.

Our groundbreaking initiative, the “Taste Advisor,” is a testament to Eataly Chicago's commitment to retail innovation. Accessible via wall totems and staff tablets, this service transforms wine selection into an engaging, informative journey, aligning with individual tastes and preferences.

The impact of the “Taste Advisor” extends beyond customer interaction. It equips our staff with deep insights into our wine selections, enabling them to provide expert advice from the first interaction. Additionally, the VINHOOD Mobile Experience extends this engagement to the customer's home, offering expert wine content and pairing suggestions.

Key results of this innovation include:

  • Enhanced Interaction: Notable improvements in customer satisfaction during interactions with our hostesses and stewards.
  • Record Sales: Eataly Wine Days brought unprecedented sales volumes to the Chicago store.
  • KIOSKS & WIDGET Performance: An average of 250-300 monthly tests with impressive lead generation conversion rates.
  • Newsletter Engagement: A significant increase in newsletter open rates, reflecting heightened customer interest.
  • Sales Boost: A noticeable surge in wine sales following targeted promotions.

Eataly Chicago's journey of innovation and improvement is ongoing, driven by our dedication to surpassing customer expectations and supporting Retail Managers in their objectives.
