With the convenience offered by ecommerce channels, brick-and-mortar customers expect more from their in-store experiences, and in the midst of chilly temps, short days and end-of-year stress, consumers are in need of some R&R. Accordingly, retailers are elevating the value of physical store channels by positioning wellness-oriented experiences and products alongside the purchase path.

From offering shoppers the chance to catch some shut eye while on the go to offering quick massages, retailers ranging a spate of industries are focusing on health, relaxation and wellbeing for the holiday season. Here’s how three brands are targeting and engaging self-care oriented customers:

Equinox
Premium fitness company Equinox is looking to delve further into the beauty and wellness market by debuting its first-ever Holiday Gift Giving Suite for its customers, hoping that consumers will come to associate the brand with a self-care lifestyle.

L’Occitane
French beauty brand L’Occitane’s flagship shop on Fifth Avenue in New York City offers hand massages, the chance to create custom souvenirs and even enjoy a Provençal treat. Alongside a variety of L’Occitane goods, the store will also sell stationery from Rifle Paper Co. and water bottles from S’well.

Casper Dreamery
The Dreamery is a playful activation that not only promotes Casper mattresses, but also positions the company as a sleep brand. The napping lounge invites guests to take a 45-minute nap inside one of its nine sleeping nooks furnished with Casper products.
