Retailers, and landlords, in Britain are coming up with all sorts of ways to keep their spaces germ-free, crowd-free and easy to navigate. Their future depends upon it.
Scott Malkin, the founder of Value Retail, said agile companies are planning for post-COVID-19 growth.
The company made a similar move earlier this year at its Chinese villages when they were in lockdown.
The Maiyet Collective brings more than 40 socially conscious fashion, beauty and jewelry brands from all over the world to the outlet.
The British Fashion Council’s annual Designer Pop-Up at Bicester will decamp to Value Retail’s Shanghai Village in 2020 as part of a surge in Chinese tourist shopping.
The pop-up will feature pieces of the e-commerce retailer’s in-house label Layeur, as well as an edit of the luxury brands it stocks.
The village is teaming with Elephant Family and the pop-up features fashion, lifestyle and jewelry designers.
The pop-up is curated by Susie Bubble and features 10 Chinese designers.
The pop-up kicks off the BFC’s and Bicester Village’s new Business of Retail partnership.
