KENJI to open in Liverpool One
The 1,500sq ft concept store in Liverpool One is set to be the first of three new concept stores scheduled to open this month alongside Manchester Arndale and Meadowhall Sheffield, with the creation of 20 new vacancies in each location.
“The challenges of the high street is well documented, but this does not mean its time for giving up. We see this as an opportunity to showcase the strength and uniqueness of the KENJI brand, and a shopping experience which is highly enjoyable. When we combine this with great value and inspirational products, it creates a complete experience that cannot be replicated online,” KENJI’s Head of Operation, Derek Yong said.
Their new concept features a complete retail experience through a food hall and mini arcade combining retail, leisure and hospitality into one concept space, to encourage a seamless brand experience and social media sharing.
The store also facilitates the creation of community-based hubs with retail space for local curated makers to market their products which refreshes every two weeks. The custom designed store features oversized brushed gold ceiling frame which is decorated with the current season’s floral display, reinventing itself at the start of every season.
KENJI's Liverpool will open in mid September with a grand launch party scheduled for the 26th of September.
The Manchester based retailer aims to open 200 retail stores in the UK by 2025.
