Doing your holiday shopping online just got a little more fun, thanks to Sam’s Club. A recent survey revealed that the warehouse store’s members were turning to the Internet to shop during the pandemic and that they were planning to start buying earlier this year, so they came up with an engaging and festive way for them to do it. Sam’s Club’s new virtual holiday shopping experience is a “virtual Griswold house” based on the beloved movie, “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.”
The fictional family’s home has been recreated online and shoppers can click through the fully decked out house with details that would make Clark himself proud. It’s full of shoppable items, from Christmas tree decorations to pumpkin spice cheesecake and it’s got decorating theme options to choose between, like “merry metallics” or “holiday splendor” as you move from the front yard to the living room.
There are interactive features all around, clicking on a red button shows shopping details, and there are also sound effects - like a cat that’s been wrapped up in a present - and trivia about the film. You’ll even see some nods to Christmas Vacation under the tree, like dog cookies to Snots the dog and a ladder for accident-prone Clark. And you don’t even have to be a Sam’s Club member to use the shopping experience.
