Canon Australia opens unique consumer retail Experience Store

Canon Australia opens unique consumer retail Experience Store
Sydney, Australia, 5 July 2018 – Canon Australia is proud to announce the launch of a new retail experience concept, providing a unique Canon environment that caters to all levels of visual creative from beginner to enthusiast. Located in the heart of South Melbourne (95 Buckhurst St), Canon’s Experience Store offers people an opportunity to be inspired, learn and try the gamut of Canon products, services, events and content through an experience customised for them.

Led by Jason McLean, Director of Canon Australia’s Consumer Imaging Division, Canon‘s Experience Store project was based on extensive research into what Australians want from the brand. According to McLean, the brief for the store was simple and single-minded:

“Our objective was to create the best consumer experience possible. We had no preconceived ideas and deliberately looked to challenge established ways of thinking that become experience barriers.”

“The result is a space that is welcoming to all, provides unrestricted access to our gear and encourages an exploration of photography, videography and print in a way that’s relevant to you as an individual,” continues McLean.

Welcome one and all

Occupying 320 sqm, the Canon Experience Store offers an experience personalised to the visitor using their own images. This includes tailored demonstrations, consultations, lessons, safaris and guides to help people take their next step with confidence. Regularly refreshed, the Store will have image features that inspire and offer accessibility regardless of skill level.

The store offers all Canon photography, video and print products from entry-level to professional, as well as related services including photoPICO wall art and photobooks,Irista cloud storage and Canon Collective events and workshops. Occupying the same site as the new SUNSTUDIOS Melbourne, the combined location provides a complete destination for visual creativity, extending from consumer level right through to professional studios, rental, sales, service and fine art printing.

Chris Siacolas, the newly appointed experience store Manager and Canon employee of 18 years, believes the time is right to welcome more people to the world of photography and video image-making. “Photos and videos are at the heart of how we communicate today, but we’ve just scratched the surface in helping people understand what they can achieve,” says Siacolas. “In a typical retail environment, you wait to have devices unlocked and have very limited ability to trial them. At our Experience Store, you’re able to play, test and explore with guidance from our in-store Ambassadors, based solely on what you want to achieve.”

“By showing not telling, and inspiring before selling, we aim to encourage many more people to see the world of opportunities that open up with Canon products and services.”

The experience-led brand

Canon’s new Experience Store is the ultimate expression of Canon Australia’s brand ambition, which has seen a constant and determined evolution from product wholesaler to experience facilitator, fuelling the people’s passion for imaging and helping them see what they can achieve with Canon’s complete product and service offering.

Ground-breaking achievements from Canon’s Australian arm include the Canon Collective, an experience team that hosts consumer experiences, festivals, overseas tours and Light Awards Live competitions around the country. Canon Australia also hosts world-leading social media channels, and rich content channels focussed on celebrating the achievements of Canon users. A standout among these is the Tales By Light series launched on National Geographic Channel and now streaming globally on Netflix.

“At Canon we enjoy a freedom globally to approach each market based on the local needs and opportunities and that’s something we don’t take for granted,” says Jason McLean. “We test and learn extensively and feel we have a good grasp on what people want from us. We look forward to seeing how our experience store is received.”

Other Canon Experience Store features include:
  • A welcome concierge and onsite valet for visitors’ convenience
  • Highly experienced in-store Ambassadors with over 50 years’ combined experience and ability to support every visitor with their creative journey
