BOX PARK SHOREDITCH SET TO CLOSE AFTER 13 YEARS

BOX PARK SHOREDITCH SET TO CLOSE AFTER 13 YEARS

Residents, after 13 successful years, Boxpark Shoreditch has announced it will be closing its doors at the end of the Summer! The venue, which is made up of two luxuriously renovated shopping contains, brought Londoners together in a unique way since its 2011 launch. 

The east London hot spot is closing due to their lease running out in August, but in a statement regarding the close, they pledged to give customers an “unforgettable farewell". ‘The worlds first pop-up mall’, as the brand described themselves, has been home to fashion stores, restaurants, bars, independent retailers and more for over a decade. Boxpark offered independent fashion brands, many created by minority groups (such as Trapstar), a chance to showcase and sell their items in one of London’s leading artsy locations. All in all, showcasing 250 businesses during their successful stretch. 

The location, which drew in more than a million visitors each year, has been a hub for Londoners from every corner and we will be sad to see it go. However, all is not lost as the brand have announced they will be opening two new locations later this year, in Liverpool Street and Camden. The brand is even looking to take the successful venture beyond London for the first time, with a Bristol venue in the works for 2025. 

In a statement released by Boxpark chief executive Simon Champion, he said:

"Whilst our time in our current site at Shoreditch is coming to an end, we look forward to celebrating all that we have achieved at the venue over the summer…

In the remaining time we have left in Shoreditch we will work as hard as possible to support our team with the transition and aim to relocate our 30+ tenants and their staff at our other sites, whilst giving all our wonderful customers an unforgettable farewell."
