Complementary range of products online and offline
With almost 1,000 stores in the Netherlands and millions of website visitors per week, Kruidvat is one of the most famous Retailers in Holland. Kruidvat is now kicking off its Marketplace offer with the baby category.
“The range of baby products is really important to our customers, and we are also a major player in this category”, says Roland van den Berg, Online Business Director at AS Watson Benelux, as Kruidvat’s parent company.
To complement the existing range of products in shops and online in a meaningful way, Kruidvat chose the Mirakl platform, a leading solution in the marketplace sector.
In order to add value to the successful collection already in the shops and online, the offer on Kruidvat Marketplace is complementary. “We do not wish to compete with our existing range”, continues Van den Berg. “This is also clear in our choice of suppliers. The new range increases our total baby collection from 750 to as many as 3000 products. Including, for example, car seats, baby monitors, travel cots, pushchairs, etc. A whole range of products that were not previously in our standard collection, but for which young parents can now also shop at Kruidvat.”
