Callaway Golf’s new corporate identity, which consists of the revitalised logo, a new colour palette where green plays a prominent part and a set graphics system, has already been introduced in many areas in 2001 from advertising to point of sale.
Now a new merchandising system for Europe has 40 key golf stores designated to receive the full shop concept in 2001 with more coming on line in 2002 and beyond. Callaway Golf Europe has announced that the first 3 store in store concepts will open in Glasgow, Paris and Biarritz.
In order to qualify for the full store in store concept, customers offer up between 250 and 1000 square feet (25-95 m2) of space to the Callaway units in order to create a proper “mini shop” feel. Other customers will receive smaller point of purchase display stands with the same look.
The units have been designed by Minneapolis based design company Entolo who have great experience in this area, creating concepts in the past for companies such as Gateway.
Patrice Hutin, managing director of Callaway Golf Europe said, “Callaway Golf has worked extensively over the last year with Entolo to produce a merchandising concept which is progressive in approach and unique to the golf industry. We and our retail customers are extremely excited about the potential to grow our businesses with the help of the new store concept and about producing a far better shopping experience for the golfing consumer”.
