Sport Check recently opened the doors of its new sports retail store in downtown Vancouver to the public and this 53,000 square foot flagship location is impressive for more than just its size.

The new Sport Check store appeals to a new generation of athletic consumers with three floors of highly interactive environments. The store includes motion-activated screens, a virtual golf kiosk that recommends products and in-store tablets to connect consumers with the company's online commerce website. There are also LED ribbons that display the latest sports scores, helping to keep consumers in the store and on the street informed. Inside, there are also a number of shop-in-shop stations from brands like Nike, Adidas, Fitbit and GoPro.

This inspiring retail environment sets a new precedent for the use of in-store technology for retailers who deal in sporting goods and beyond.
