Verishop is a shopping website, and brand incubator launched earlier this year by former Snap exec Imran Khan and his wife, has struck a deal with U.S. mall owner Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield to open 14 stores by next year. That may include a mixture of pop-up retailers and permanent areas, the companies stated.
Verishop’s first space, for its personal skin-care model Ghost Democracy, opened in October at Westfield Century City in Los Angeles. Other shops, which will likely be for a wide range of Verishop’s in-house brands, are slated to move into Westfield World Trade Center, Garden State Plaza, and San Francisco Centre, amongst different properties. Westfield’s malls are usually extremely trafficked and in city metro areas.
Verishop, along with being an online market where people purchase from trendy brands like Vince and LoveShackFancy, has opted to launch a few of its personal brands. Ghost Democracy, which sells skin lotions and facial oils; Billie the Label, a women’s clothes brand; and Lett, a leisurewear model, are among the many first. The corporate says it has extra within the works.
Verishop is primarily concentrating on youthful, millennial, and prosperous prospects. It has tabs on its website for picks from social media and style influencers, and for sustainably sourced objects. Whereas you should buy $11 Calvin Klein underwear on Verishop, it’s also possible to discover a Diane von Furstenberg coat for $1,498 on the site.
Thus so far in 2019, retailers within the U.S. have introduced a record 9,271 store closures, in accordance with tracking by Coresight Research.
