Who’s made our list of the year’s memorable store openings? We pick six favourites from around the world. Take a look…
Apple – Brussels
Whatever Apple does, you know it’s going to be influential. This store offers up a fresh face for a new generation, and we don’t expect it to stop here – watch this space.
Target Open House – San Francisco
Smart home tech was big news last year and will continue to be so in 2016, with a score of major retailers making their play. Target’s educational set piece around the subject set a high standard.
Muji – New York
Building on great work over the past two years, Muji’s largest US store to date champions locality, collaboration and customisation.
& Other Stories – New York
Another must-see Manhattan store, this was the Swedish retailer’s first landing in the US, and has since been succeeded by an even bigger and better store on Fifth Avenue.
Niko and… TOKYO – Tokyo
One of our team came across this editorial lifestyle store (it changes themes every couple of months) on a trip to Japan and the rest of us would love to check out the beautifully curated space for ourselves.
Lush – London
Great service, great staff and a vibrant, stimulating store environment where customers can get hands-on with product, have beauty treatments or even watch movies.
