Overview of storefronts.
We reached out and were happy to have support from Under Armor at the store. To go through a few strong points that we can recognize are:
1. The style is extremely youthful and pure in sportswear.
2. Staff are very friendly as well as enthusiastic about customer arrival.
The shop manager is very cute (y)
3. Nice store decoration and very comfortable outfits.
4. The price is quite competitive compared to Nike, adidas,… brands.
However, there are some points that Under Armor Vietnam may need to improve in the near future to be able to win the hearts of Vietnamese customers as follows:
1. The size of the store is quite small, leading to limited display of products.
2. The products are very sporty and pure for sports, so it will be difficult to apply to casual wear.
Training shoes and accessories are quite complete such as hats, backpacks, socks (socks), bar wristbands, head wears
3. The product is not really diverse for easy selection and especially the Under Armor Curry 1 High pair is not currently available at the store. Young people wishing to own UA Curry and their star idol will be a bit disappointed. Hopefully, the signature shoes of MVP NBA star last season will appear soon.
In summary, the appearance of Under Armor proves that the Vietnamese market is very potential and the competition for market share in the sportswear and sneakers segment will be really exciting in 2016.
Surely, consumers will have more options in the near future.
