This is Retro
Since 1986, Retro has been selling clothing to fashion-conscious and curious Norwegians with a taste for quality.
Their goal is to provide a complete wardrobe for the modern and conscious consumer. You should get the great feeling of discovering your new favorites.
Physical stores connected with the online store
Retro has four physical stores located in Trondheim, Bergen, and Kristiansand. By default, the inventory is updated based on both locations in Trondheim, while Bergen and Kristiansand are “deactivated for online purchases” and are displayed for informational purposes only.
When an order is placed that contains products from different inventories, a movement in the inventory is created to illustrate where specific items should be retrieved to fulfill the order. When items are returned, this information is used to return them to the inventory they were originally sourced from.
With advanced reporting, Retro’s employees can see where individual products come from, manage transfers, and later visualize them in the ERP system through export.
Easy to add products to a wishlist
Sometimes, customers may want to wait for their next paycheck, find inspiration, share a nice garment with a friend, or explore more products.
A simple, quick, and accessible wishlist is an excellent way for upselling and attracting more customers through recommendations.
Efficient backroom processes drive growth
We have optimized Retro’s backroom specifically for the fashion industry and its needs. This allows Retro’s employees to work smoothly, easily, and more efficiently with product information, product connections, media such as images and videos, and entire outfits related to the season.
Additionally, we have created simple and effective tools that make it easy for employees to work on presenting the product range in the online store. They can easily drag and drop elements and media to showcase the assortment in the best possible way, every day.
To ensure fast and efficient customer follow-up and a productive work environment, we have also tailored the solutions for order processing and customer service to Retro’s specific way of working.
An efficient and customized backroom helps employees increase customer satisfaction and frees up internal resources to focus on sales-promoting activities.
Automatic product categorization and menu structure
For well-functioning online stores, product categorization is essential. It makes products more searchable and makes the task of running campaigns and promoting specific products to different target groups much more manageable.
For Retro, we built functionality for categorization that allows employees to manually create a menu structure based on categories such as “Women,” “Men,” “New Arrivals,” and “Summer Sale.” The URL structure itself automatically updates when prefixes are connected to the main URL, for example:
- https://retro.no/dame/klaer/jeans and
- https://retro.no/herre/klaer/jeans are subsets of
- https://retro.no/klaer/jeans and this happens automatically when the gender prefix is linked to the main URL.
The page will not yield any results if it is not promoted in the menu, even if the link is accessible. In this case, it applies to items like dresses, skirts, and tops, for example.
Get reminders for sold-out sizes
For sold-out sizes, customers can request a reminder when the item is back in stock in that specific size. Several factors affecting availability, beyond just inventory status, have also been taken into account, such as planned availability.
increase in revenue in the first 6 months after launch compared to the same period the previous year
more conversions after 6 months compared to the same period before the launch
increase in average order value
increase in the number of transactions

Klarna for payments
Klarna Checkout is arguably the most popular Payment Service Provider (PSP) in Nordic countries. It’s generally known for providing a smooth checkout experience. The main reason for this is its extensive user base that has used Klarna before. This means that users don’t need to fill out their address and payment information when they visit your store, even if they haven’t shopped at your specific online store before.
However, there are limitations in flexibility with Klarna Checkout, which may necessitate considering the use of Klarna Payments instead. Klarna Payments offers a headless (API) approach to checkout, allowing you to build unique checkout experiences for your customers.
Available payment methods with Klarna include credit/debit card payments, invoice payments, and financing options with installment payments over time.
Frontkom maintains the official Drupal Klarna module and collaborates closely with Klarna to deliver the best shopping experience to its customers.
