Zip Express Teams With Shopko
Regional retailer Shopko announced this week that it has teamed up with Zip Express Installation to provide its services at select Shopko locations. The services offered include delivery, diagnosis and repair, TV and home theater installation, computer networking and electronics recycling.
"By partnering and offering our services, retailers stand to increase customer retention, extend their positive brand value beyond the store walls, and gain incremental revenue at check out - all the while, stemming unnecessary consumer returns and exchanges from today's technology learning curve," Chris Mauzy, president and CEO of Zip Express Installation, said as part of the announcement.
"Zip Express will now manage these services for select Shopko locations, eliminating the costly overhead and underutilization of labor typically associated with this type of infrastructure, and, most importantly, allow them to compete with the current and massive trend of service-oriented retail that you see retailers running toward in every Sunday circular."
Shopko, based in Wisconsin, operates 136 stores in the Midwest and Mountain west.
