Boxpark, Shoreditch and Croydon sites have won the award for best ‘Retail Destination’ in the Retail Week Awards 2019.
Nominated alongside global names such as Adidas and Harvey Nichols, Boxpark went up against tough competition to secure top place in the ‘Retail Destination’ category.
Originally launched in 2010, Boxpark Shoreditch was the world’s first pop-up mall, fusing concepts of the modern street food market and the pop-up retail mall. In October 2016, the second Boxpark site opened in Croydon, holding a 2,000 capacity events space and a programme of music and entertainment events alongside the diverse selection of food vendors.
Following the success of Boxpark Shoreditch and Croydon, the world-renowned development company has since launched the largest Boxpark site to date in Wembley Park. Boxpark Wembley provides the ultimate fan zone with a 20,000 square foot events space, creating an immersive leisure experiences based on the Boxpark philosophy of Eat. Drink. Play.
Roger Wade, CEO and Founder of Boxpark, said, “I’m so proud and humbled to have won this award. We passionately believe in the future of retail and that retail is a form of entertainment – if you’re not entertaining the customer then you won’t exist.”
