Stride Rite partners with Zinrelo to increase customer engagement and build a strong community with a Loyalty Program.

Online PR News – 11-April-2022 – Palo Alto, California, United States – "I just bought new shoes for my daughter. It was at the dinner table when she walked her first steps with her new shoes, holding my big hands in her little fingers. With stumbling moves, she debuted into walking to enter the new phase of her life. Amanda and I went crazy seeing our baby walking. Tears rolled down; we clicked pictures and videos. We wanted to share our feelings badly with the world," said Cooper, father of little girl Catherine.

It is with moments like the above, Stride ride decided to build a community for parents and kids. A loyal community to share, express and laugh at their child's first walk. Building a community not only creates a sense of belongingness in the customer but also helps the brand enhance customer engagement and boost revenues. A loyalty program is the best way to build this community!

Being the leading kid's footwear brand for the last 100 years, Stride Rite started looking for experts who could help them launch a multidimensional loyalty program. That's where they found Zinrelo, the expert in unlocking the true potential of the community by building loyalty programs.

Stride Rite witnessed a 1.31X higher customer retention after launch of ‘little loyal’ program.
