As a longtime client, Virid continues to implement new projects and improvements to Journeys’ site. In 2020, Virid implemented BOPIS services in July for Journeys as well as continued site experience improvement.

 

With extensive site test loading prior to Black Friday weekend, Virid ensured that Journey’s site performed throughout the holiday weekend, while retailer sites with similar traffic crashed.


Last year, Journeys saw a +29% increase in desktop sales and +55% increase in mobile sales year over year.
