Storefront, the Global Marketplace For Short Term Space Rental Expands to Hong Kong
Named one of Marketing Week’s 100 Disruptive Brands 2016 and “ the face of the retail sharing economy” by NGKF, Storefront is the foremost marketplace in the world for finding and renting short-term retail space. The company streamlines the search and rental process to connect artists, retailers, and brands with a variety of temporary retail spaces: trendy showrooms, neighborhood boutiques, street fair booths, and art galleries. Storefront has powered more than 3,000 stores for rapidly growing startups (Square, Jawbone, Indochino, Etsy), global brands (Loréal, Google, Target, Nike, Mahindra, Maje), and even Yeezus himself, Kanye West.
Our goal is to disrupt the commercial real estate market in pretty much the same way AIRBNB did with the hotel industry. Our ambition is to democratize access to the commercial real estate market: we want to revolutionize the way brands rent commercial spaces by making the renting of short-term commercial space as easy as booking an hotel room. We are building “the future of retail” by making it more engaging and more transparent. The company is led by Mohamed Haouache, CEO, and directed by Benoît Clément-Bollée in Asia.
Launching the Largest International Pop-Up Marketplace
We have expanded to Hong Kong, in addition to London, Amsterdam, and Paris, from its offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City. We stand as being the first international marketplace for pop-up stores.
“We are extremely excited to expand Storefront to Asia. Hong Kong is an incredibly dynamic market with abundant opportunities for brands to gain exposure,” explains Benoît Clément-Bollée, co-founder and CEO of Storefront Asia.
The company specializes in matching a network of over 80,000+ brands (retailers, Ecommerce players, artists, entrepreneurs, etc.) with commercial spaces across 3 continents to launch short-term pop-up stores, showrooms, private sales, products launches and other events. These spaces can be rented for as little as one day up to several months, offering the most prominent possibility for filling vacant spaces with brands that range from local startups to international luxury brands.
“Expanding to Asia is a top priority for many of our U.S. brands,” says Mohamed Haouache, co-founder and CEO. “The ability to use a single service to find premium retail spaces for pop-up stores in cities around the world is something many brands have requested. The Hong Kong expansion opens doors for international brands in Asia and will further democratize the concept of the pop-up store.”
