The new Mox Personal Shopper Pilot service now brings the Mox experience to your living room. Not sure what to pick up for your next game night? Looking for a gift for a gamer friend? We’ve got you covered!
Starting on March 8th, customers in Seattle will be able to book appointments to speak with a Mox Retail Associate via video call to place orders for future pickup. The service is being initially offered exclusively at the Seattle location to test it out and gather customer feedback. Keep reading for full details on the Personal Shopper service.
What is the Mox Personal Shopper service?
The Mox Personal Shopper service is a new program we are offering that allows you to receive one on one help with and recommendations for the products we sell at Mox. We are passionate about games and part of the fun is paring the right game with the right person. You can book 30-minute-long appointments with Mox Retail Sales Associates to get your gaming questions answered and can pick up their items in-store or by Curbside Pickup at a later date.
What’s exciting about the Mox Personal Shopper service?
You get the full-service experience of visiting Mox from the comfort of your home. At the time of booking, you’ll provide your name, email, and any information about the kind of gaming you’re looking to do or the person you’re buying for. Then, your friendly Mox Retail Sales Associate will give you a call the day of your appointment and will have tailored recommendations ready for you! You’ll also have time to ask follow-up questions and even get recommendations for other titles you might like based on additional feedback.
Does the service cost anything to use?
Booking your appointment is totally free, and your products will cost the same as if you had if you shopped in-store. In addition, as a special incentive during the pilot program, we’ll be offering 10% off your purchase made from a Mox Personal Shopper appointment! (Magic: The Gathering, Games Workshop, and Gift Cards excluded)
Can I use this service to make Card Kingdom purchases?
At this time the service will be limited to the product available for purchase at our Mox Retail store, so MTG singles or other products available exclusively on Card Kingdom will not be available. You’ll have to place your singles order separately online, and the 10% discount will not apply to Card Kingdom orders.
Who is this service for?
The Mox Personal Shopper Pilot is currently limited to customers who are able to pick up their items at our Ballard location, in Seattle. Shipping is not available for this service at this time, however, we plan on expanding the ways we offer this service in the future! While the service is family-friendly, appointments must be made by customers of ages 18 and older.
Do I have to own a webcam/appear on camera to use the service?
Not at all! You will not be required to appear on camera during your appointment, and a webcam is not required. Your Mox Retail Sales Associate will appear on camera and will be able to show you the games in-store on our shelves.
