ARKET opens its first store in Germany

 

The first ARKET store in Germany, 004005-940, is now open. The new store is located on Weinstraße 6 in Munich, and is following the brand’s launch in London and online, as well as store openings in Copenhagen and Brussels earlier this autumn

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, 2017-Oct-17 — /EPR Retail News/ — Housed in a new four-floor building in the centre of the city, between the famous 12th-century town square and the landmark ‘Frauenkirche’ cathedral, ARKET will be a modern-day market offering essential products for men, women, children and the home.

The store occupies the entire building, a space of approximately 1,000 square metres, and includes
a café based on the New Nordic Food Manifesto. The café is located at the ground level with outdoor seating in a laneway courtyard, next to Munich’s historic breweries and beer gardens.

“This is a unique opportunity for us. We feel very lucky to be able to open the first ARKET store in Germany in this interesting corner location. It is a beautiful space, it feels very modern but has a depth of character already, with natural light flooding the store from all directions”

Ulrika Bernhardtz, Creative Director, at the time of the store’s announcement earlier this year.

ARKET means ‘sheet of paper’ in Swedish. Its mission is to democratise quality through widely accessible, well-made, durable products designed to be used and loved for a long time. The collections are composed of ARKET’s own products alongside a selection of the best examples from other brands.

H&M brand Arket to open its first store in Stockholm in spring 2018

H&M brand Arket to open its first store in Stockholm in spring 2018

ARKET will open its first store in Stockholm (0 0 4 0 0 8 – 9 4 0 ) in spring 2018, following openings in London, Brussels, Copenhagen and Munich, and the launch of the online store in autumn 2017.

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, 2017-Jul-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — Located at Biblioteksgatan 9, in the heart of Stockholm’s shopping district Bibliotekstan, ARKET will offer essential products for men, women, children and the home. The store will also include a café based on the New Nordic Food Manifesto. ARKET’s mission is to democratise quality through widely accessible, well-made, durable products designed to be used and loved for a long time.

The new store will be housed in a building that dates from 1897 and boasts a number of distinctive features of Sweden’s ‘National Romantic’ style. But apart from its architectural pedigree, the building also has an interesting history. It accommodated the original shop of Svenska Hem (Swedish Home), the women’s food cooperative founded in 1905 by the famous Swedish educator and women’s suffragist Anna Whitlock. Members included the Nobel-prizewinning author Selma Lagerlöf, singer-actress Harriet Bosse (wife of the playwright August Strindberg) and the early Swedish feminist Ellen Key.

“We are very fortunate to be opening our first hometown store on Biblioteksgatan, where we’ll find ourselves in great company,” says Managing Director Lars Axelsson. “The Stockholm ARKET store opens spring 2018, but the brand will be present online in Sweden as well as 17 other countries from the first day of our launch on Regent Street in London this autumn.”
