Reverse showrooming is simple. Most consumers that go into a physical Fabletics store are already a member. They can try on clothing and once they do that, the article of clothing goes into their online shopping cart. They can either purchase it in store or online. Other consumers that are not a member, go into the store and leave a member by the time they are done.

 

Fabletic relies on data to keep up with the trends and demands of today’s active world needs. While they know that the data doesn’t determine their success, they rely on that to stock their physical stores with what consumers want to see. They also handle their digital store in the same manner. This keeps their consumers wanting more and it keeps their attention on the Fabletics brand.

 

Fabletics is constantly evolving and moving forward into new and exciting areas with their physical stores and e-commerce stores. By keeping up with their growth and the consumer’s needs and their cultures, it pushes the company up in a positive and rewarding manner. They have changed the whole outlook on what is considered high value. Before, high value was determined on price and quality. Now it is determined by customer service, recognition of the brand, and exclusive designs. Fabletics business grows by 35% yearly and it will continue to grow as long as they continue with their current business strategy.
