As for many other businesses, ICA Nära Sergels Torg had problems claiming and verifying their profile on Google.

ICA Nära Sergels Torg wanted to put their store on the map and better catch the eye of local customers rushing past. By taking care of their profile, they were also looking to improve their brand awareness and create a reliable review platform to generate a customer base through Google My Business.

Mobal is maintaining the store's critical online to offline information, like opening hours, contact information, and offers, accurately. The integration of the physical store with online channels is essential for grocery stores today. Grocery buying is changing due to the emergence of omnichannel retailing. With more customers than ever now engaging through mobile devices, store owners must ensure that all digital channels are integrated and offer consistent information. Having a local page as a source of communication between the customer and the store is invaluable.
