Shopify Plus Replatform

Since 1969, B&Q has been the UK’s leading home improvement and garden retailer, helping customers ‘Do It Themselves.’ In 2022, the iconic brand launched in Saudi Arabia as B&Q KSA, a franchise owned and operated by Al Futtaim Group.

After launching two physical stores in the region, B&Q KSA’s next focus was online. As the leading Shopify agency for international e-commerce, we were brought in to take on the challenge.

The Challenge

B&Q KSA wanted to replicate the design of the well-established UK online store, but with two key differences: It needed to be powered by Shopify Plus, and fully localized for the Saudi Arabian market.

The Solution

Following the design system set out on the UK site, we built a brand new bespoke Shopify Plus store, engineered specifically for KSA. Shopify Markets powers the multi-language functionality, allowing for shopping in both English and Arabic, with further localization for Arabic speakers in the form of a flipped, Right To Left layout and Right To Left-focused controls.

Behind the scenes, sizable integration work was undertaken, integrating Shopify Plus with Akeneo PIM, B&Q KSA’s ERP, and AFG’s Blue Rewards system.

The Results

The combined efforts of design replication, localization, and integration have resulted in an enhanced user experience for B&Q KSA customers. Now, their customers in Saudi Arabia can enjoy a user-friendly, fully localized, and feature-rich online shopping platform, strengthening their market presence.
