The ShopStoree Mission
To change the way we shop online by making it about the context, environment and experience retailers have to offer in the physical world, rather than the grids and rows of products against white backgrounds we have adapted to become commonplace online.
We are about empowering small business retailers who have physical shops with something special to share. To us, a shop is more than a shop. It is a feeling. A destination. A unique blend of artisans, objects, and culture.
ShopStoree captures all of that, curates it and sets
it free for you to discover and indulge. We believe an amazing retail experience is not confined to a physical store.
It transcends that. It is about the joy of discovery. And we believe that kind of discovery can be experienced in a digital world.
ShopStoree re-imagines online retail to be more real by bringing stores to life so shopping is more personal, more captivating and more connected with community.
Our product (www.shopstoree.com) empowers small businesses by giving them an e-commerce platform where they can simply take a photo of their store and tag items within that photo for sale, thereby capturing product within the environment it sits in. On the shopper side, we offer a marketplace where you can discover and shop from immersive photos of the most amazing retailers around the world.
We have unique retailers from Cincinnati, Columbus, Covington, Austin, and Portland signed up and excited to get their stores online. We're launching a beta in the coming weeks to open up our marketplace to a select group of shoppers.
Through our accelerator (www.brandery.org), we've made great connections with Angels and VCs, and have a solid group of mentors and advisors to help guide us along the way.
Our team is composed of experienced retail marketing and merchandising experts. Collectively we've worked for some of the world's most admired brands-Disney, Anthropologie, and Apple.
We come from families of small business owners, and are deeply passionate in going back to those roots.
