WHAT
We are looking for innovative ideas for service concepts, which are in line with the Magasin brand, but push it towards innovation and creativity.
Magasin was founded on offering excellent products at great prices, and over the years the Magasin brand name has become synonymous with quality, value, service and trust.
Over the last years, however, we have focused more and more on innovation, and understanding what customers really need and want. And we now want to find more innovative ways to deliver it.
Today we already offer several service concepts:
- Personal shoppers for women was introduced a few years ago and personal shoppers for men was introduced in 2009. Both concepts have been highly successful.
- Magasin Goodiecard gives +120.000 cardholders special benefits/invitations
- Magasin has the best return policy with 30 days return rights

We are specifically looking for new service concepts to add to this list, but that are truly innovative: original, unusual, possibly even experimental and revolutionary, creative and fresh, but still in line with our brand and position.

WHAT NOT
It is paramount that the concept is easy to implement, and has a strong “hands-on approach”.
