Men's Wearhouse (NYSE: MW) is rolling out click-and-collect and an employee-facing app to help associates execute its omnichannel strategy.
The retailer will now offer in-store pickup at all 900 U.S. stores. The launch follows a successful pilot in the Houston market and comes on the heels of the company's announcement it will acquire its smaller rival, Jos. A. Bank (NASDAQ: JOSB).
A new app strictly for employees, called Find-It, allows store staff to check inventory levels across the entire network and add an item to the customer's order from any location. More than 650 retail stores will also be equipped with iPads with which employees can access and use the Find-It app.
Men's Wearhouse is now offering endless aisle inventory. Online shoppers can now view all the inventory at nearby stores and the company's distribution center. Shoppers can reserve items online for in-store pickup at any Men's Wearhouse location of their choice.
Mobile is re-invigorating retail on a lot of levels and leveraging mobile to achieve omnichannel success is a powerful tool for retailers.
