Customers can also benefit from the Nike App in-store features such as Nike Shop the Look, Nike Instant Checkout and the Nike Scan to Try allows customers to instantly shop in-store displays, checkout in-store or request to try-on items.

Nike Shop the Look allows customers to scan a QR code on an in-store mannequin to explore every single item on the mannequin for different sizes and colours, and request for select products to be sent to a fitting room.

The entrance to the store, Nike Arena, features the Team Nike Service Desk to support customers in their shopping, as well as a custom-designed installation, Sport Beacon.
