The Compass Rose Loyalty Experience

The Compass Rose Difference

Compass Rose is a beloved daily gift store that specializes in modern goods from local artists, handcrafted jewelry and home decor. Owner Paul Shepard opened the first store in downtown Olympia in 1998, and three more Pacific Northwest locations have opened since then. Paul empowers his staff to make inventory and merchandising decisions, and the team works collaboratively to create a memorable shopping experience for their customers.

20+ Years of Customer Loyalty

Enduring customer loyalty and retention has allowed Compass Rose to stay in business, grow, and open three new locations over the past twenty years. When the stores had to close for three months due to Covid, customers proactively purchased gift cards to show their support.

This focus on loyalty led Compass Rose to embrace the SnowShoe Go Downtown loyalty program as yet another benefit to offer their loyal patrons.

Olympia Pilot Retail Program

The Go Downtown app is a new world-class loyalty application developed by SnowShoe, a leader in mobile authentication. The app couples with a unique hardware solution, called the Spark Tap®, which allows for rapid customer check-ins and a frictionless loyalty rewards program. The gamified solution incentives shoppers to visit multiple stores and share favorite shopping loops with friends.
