Lindt, the world’s number one premium chocolate brand, is partnering with native Metaverse e-commerce platform, ByondXR, to launch its first-ever 3D virtual store in the United States.
STRATHAM, NH /ACCESSWIRE/November 17, 2022/ Lindt, the Swiss premium chocolate and confectionery company founded in 1845 and known for its iconic LINDOR truffle and bar offerings, announces the launch of a 3D virtual store in the USA. Developped by ByondXR – the leading 3D commerce platform – the virtual store is truly a happy medium between traditional holiday sweets and modern, innovative shopping solutions.
Set in a beautifully decorated, fully 3D and highly photorealistic environment, the store welcomes customers with an engaging introduction from one of Lindt’s renowned master chocolatiers, Ann Czaja. The best thing is that the immersive store is fully shoppable: just choose the chocolate you like, add it to cart, and checkout seamlessly.
At the entrance, the luxury gift station awaits you with superb boxes of Lindt chocolates. Then, if clients are looking for something a little more classic, they can explore bars and hollow figures. A colorful wall of LINDOR Truffles and a chocolate fountain will almost have you smelling chocolate! Exploring the store further, customers can then move into the warm and cozy living room with a wonderful view of the winter forest through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Once in the living room, guests can play a memory game to earn a discount on purchases and pick out some of the best holiday gifts for loved ones. The best part? The Chocolate Lab where guests can look over the shoulder of master chocolatier Lindt as they create the most delicious chocolates. Guests can also watch videos and learn the coolest facts about what goes into making Lindt chocolate.
“At Lindt USA, we’re excited to bring customers this cutting-edge retail experience just in time for the holidays” – said Patrick Diggelmann, vice president of retail and e-commerce at Lindt USA. “While there’s no experience like walking into one of our beautiful Lindt retail stores in person, our virtual store is right behind it. We’re so excited to show it off” – continued Diggelmann.
