Champions of the World
Bursting back into bricks and mortar!
A successful retailer of licensed sporting goods, at it’s peak Champions of the World had stores in tourist hot spots across New Zealand. However, in 2020 as the borders closed COTW were hit hard and were eventually forced to shut all their stores, converting the business entirely to ecommerce.
Now in 2023 we’re helping Champs in their comeback as Gary and his team begin to reopen physical stores once again – reestablishing a retail presence for this iconic kiwi retail brand.
Beginning with the first store in Christchurch’s Redwood shopping centre, we set out to provide high-quality, visible security and theft deterrence.
Cross Point AM30 pedestals provide visible security at the store entrance.
A Cross Connect access point was installed to enable visitor counting and remote service by our team, providing 24-hour support to the store.
Our team provided full installation services and remote service set up. COTW had wisely retained their security hardware when their previous stores closed, this was able to be repurposed, bought back into commission and updated with remote technology. This provided a significant cost saving and a provided a sustainable solution for the store
We’re very happy to support the team by looking after their EAS and merchandise security solutions, keeping their stock and their Redwood store safe and sound. We’re looking forward to seeing Champs back at full strength over the coming years.
Ric and his team have been great to work with for many years. They are always available to resolve issues on site
Vodafone NZ Retail engaged Vitag to carry out a national upgrade of our phone displays. The rollout went exceedingly well, especially considering the large number of variables in the stores which had to be dealt with.
The result made a huge difference to our customer’s experience, with products now working as they should and a sleek, modern, consistent look. We are seeing a much higher level of customer engagement so our team are very happy too. The security has been tested, with thieves failing to defeat the One60 Pods during a ram raid.
Vodafone is very satisfied with the outcome, thanks to the Vitag team and InVue.
Cue exclusively use Vitag for all our Electronic Article Surveillance needs. The professional team at Vitag ensure seamless installation and efficient, friendly service every time. The Vitag equipment not only looks good but has helped dramatically decrease our shrinkage throughout our stores.
Esprit started a trial of Vitag Mini-Max tags in early 2010. Prior to installing the tags we had exceptionally high shrinkage in a number of our Concession Stores. The results have been outstanding with the shrinkage improvements of between 40% to 70%. We have since increased the number of stores from an initial 7 stores to approx 23.
I have total peace of mind that my store’s laptop display is secure and accessible to my customers – and that’s great for business!
Country Road values their partnership with Vitag and thankfully acknowledge the important part they play in reducing shrinkage in all stores. Everything from their service and products to account management is always handled professionally and on time.
Not only do Vitag provide Bardot with EAS systems and tags in all our stores but it is always great peace of mind to know that I can rely on their speed and efficiency with any last minute service or orders that are crucial to protection of all our apparel.
Crazy Johns has used Vitag’s S3 Locking Hooks to securely display small, valuable, Blister Packed products for several years now with great results. We install them in all our new stores.
