Gotta catch em all at our store this weekend!
We are sure here at Swegways that we don’t need to introduce you to the most recent hysteria to sweep the globe. Yep you guessed it, Pokemon Go. The app has shattered many mobile app records, including the fastest mobile game to reach 10 million downloads, with daily users eclipsing people using Twitter. Some people were sceptical as to whether or not the app would be a short term fad, but the app is going from strength to strength and is slowly becoming a part of modern day societal behaviour.
Here at Swegway, we want to incorporate the app into what we do so that you can reap the full benefits of the app. You may or may not already know, but our flagship store in the heart of the city centre is actually a Pokestop! We saw several different Pokemon roaming about our store on Saturday and we went to help all you guys out there catch them all!
As we are also based in Sheffield, we will be directly affected by the Tramlines festival which will be occurring over the course of this weekend. For those of you that don’t know, the Tramlines Festival focuses on providing a huge array of music stages across the heart of Sheffield, bringing in thousands of revellers to soak up the atmosphere. So, what we are proposing to do is to plant some incenses and Pokemon lures within our store to give you guys the opportunity to grab yourself a range of Pokemon that you may not have caught before! You never know, if this is successful, we may look to do this more often throughout the year!
We are based within the Forum shopping centre on Devonshire Street. If you want to come and investigate, use the Common Room entrance and head toward the right of the stairs. We hope to see as many of you down at our store this weekend!
