World’s first pop-up mall retailers

Friday, 21 October 2011
This December, Boxpark, the world’s first pop-up mall is launching in Shoreditch, London. The mall brings together fashion and sports brands including the first UK stores for: Abuze, Boxfresh, House of Billiam, Luke, One True Saxon, OnePiece, Palladium, and Smile.

Boxpark will also host well known brands such as Lacoste Live, Original Penguin, Levi’s, Irregular Choice, Puma and Gola, as well as new concept stores from Amnesty, Art Against Knives, Bukowski, Nike and Oakley.

The unique shopping experience is built entirely from old shipping containers, and will feature no high street chains; just brands selected by invitation only ‘to create a revolutionary mix’.

The 60 containers will be located at The Goodsyard, a 4.7 hectares site and former railway goods yard that lies between the neighbourhoods of Shoreditch and Spitafields, which has been unused for 40 years. The design of the pop-up mall, which will initially be open for five years, will be set over two floors with the top floor dedicated to hospitality and exhibitions.
