Yesterday was international Tourism Day and I thought that I will share with you one of my favourite finds while I was out touring last summer, Zoot.
Zoot is an online retail store in the Czech Republic with pick up offices. They stock a number of brands online like Dorothy Perkins, Tommy Hilfiger, Jack Jones and more.
How does it work?
You order the products that you desire online and pick your preferred pick up office. The cool thing about it is, you do not have to pay online. All you have to do is, walk into the pick up office, try on whatever it is that you have ordered and if it works for you, you make payment and voila! It is all yours. If you also try it on and do not like how it fits, you just leave the order and the sales representatives will put the order back online.
I walked in there with a colleague, Tereza. By now, you all should be getting used to her name, right? She is one of my favourite colleagues and she sure knows how to shop some really cool items. We went to pick up her order and I spotted this cute red block heel sandals by Dorothy Perkins on the feet of a customer who was trying the order. I was so in love but wondered if I could get it since I was leaving town in 2days. Interestingly, the sales representative assured me that I could get the order the next day. So, she checked online for the shoes and found the orange version which looked cuter even. The order got placed and by the next evening, I went in to try it on, made payment and became the owner of one of my coolest shoes in my closet.
One thing you should know though, is that the store does not accept Euros. So, if you need to make payment, it has to be a Czech credit card or with the local currency of The Czech Republic which is Czech crowns.
They do have an outstanding customer service as they even give you a bottle of drink free of charge while you try on your order. It is all in the little things right? I guess that made me shop a seond time and this time, I went for the sneakers also by Dorothy Perkins. I am looking to do some more shopping from the brand and maybe this time, I can switch it up a bit with a bag or maybe shoes from another brand.
Did I mention that the deals are also great and you could also find something on sale? To check out the store, visit www.zoot.cz. Happy shopping!
