Retailer Hibbett Sporting Goods Inc., which operates more than 1,000 athletic apparel, footwear and equipment stores in small and mid-sized markets, today announced the launch of a new mobile app for iOS and Android. Birmingham, AL-based Hibbett partnered with Prolific Interactive to bring the Hibbett Sports App to the App Store and Google Play for immediate download. Consumers can browse and shop Hibbett Sports’ full product assortment from the convenience of their mobile devices.
“Nowadays everyone has a smartphone and they want more convenient ways to accomplish everyday tasks, whether it’s booking travel, ordering coffee or buying sneakers,” said Jeff Rosenthal, president and CEO, Hibbett. “Hibbett recognizes the importance of mobile and has spent over a year building and diligently testing our app with customers and stores to produce a best-in-class experience.”
To celebrate the new mobile app, Hibbett is giving away free sneakers for one year to someone who downloads the new app. In order to be entered into the sneaker giveaway, consumers will need to download the Hibbett Sports mobile app and submit their information. The promotion runs from May 1 to May 31, and the winner will be contacted by Monday, June 4.
The new Hibbett Sports App has been designed to provide users with an easy and seamless shopping experience on both major mobile platforms similar to Hibbett.com, allowing convenient access to thousands of items in Hibbett’s inventory. Some key app features include the ability to view the sneaker launch calendar, enter sneaker raffles at multiple store locations and to set reminder alerts for launch days. The new app also allows shoppers to browse and purchase products. Hibbett Rewards Loyalty Program members can access their program status and check for any available Awards and offers to use in the app or at a store.
“Through our partnership with Hibbett, we discovered the need for on-the-go access to their catalog of products,” said Dan Healy, COO of Prolific Interactive. “Through the raffle feature, customers now have instant and convenient access to exclusive sneaker releases.”
