Focusing on health and wellness instead of just being a medicine retailer, le drugstore parisien will also have charging ports and free Wi-Fi access. There are also dressing tables, a sink for those who need to freshen up, a shoe-shining machine, laundry drop-off and pick-up points and other relevant services. The drugstore concept will also open for 24 hours once a month, during which customers will be able to take advantage of exclusive wellness and entertainment events.
As drugstores in the U.S. embrace a more pharmacy-centric approach, they forgo the opportunity to become hubs for beauty and wellness, which is what L’Oréal’s store aims to capture. In the words of Jean Paul Mochet, Chief Executive Officer of Convenience Banners at the Casino Group, “The lines between work, culture and fun are being blurred, creating a new way of living. So city-dwellers need tailored products and services to make their lives easier,” which is what this immersive shopping hub hopes to provide, enhancing and expanding its usefulness to consumers by going beyond simply selling products and venturing into selling an experience.
