BHG Singapore believes retail has evolved from just quick transactions and having products on the shop floor to a more immersive retail experience. With personalised services, retail theatrics via digital touchpoints, and a seamless transition from discovery, exploration, purchase can now be done both offline and online.
This business model transformation was initiated a year ago. It started first with a change in culture, skill sets of the teams, and in technology. The renovation of BHG’s 13,000 square feet Flagship Store at Bugis Junction Level one marks one of the important milestones of this transformation, which BHG expects to keep driving over the next few years.
BHG Has Doubled The Number of Beauty Brands
Today’s beauty shoppers have developed a much more varied, broader, and nuanced set of preferences. Especially with ever-changing trends being set and shared in real-time on social media every day. To meet those needs, BHG’s flagship Beauty Hall at Bugis Junction level 1 has doubled the number of beauty brands – from 48 brands to 94 brands. BHG expanded the beauty categories with a curated collection of international beauty brands and nature-inspired brands at affordable pricing.
Shoppers are in for more delightful surprises as they explore iconic brands such as Estée Lauder and Shiseido at their refreshed counters.
