This Month in Premier Retail 3-2
Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Retail Magazine.
In this issue we take a look at a new kind of supermarket; Meny Oslo, visit the new flagship store at the Museum of Modern Art, and dive into the world of chocolate at Fortnum & Mason’s newest confectionery flagship store.
MENY, part of NorgesGruppen and leading Norwegian supermarket franchise has piloted a 23,000 sq ft concept store in CC Vest, Oslo that represents its largest store size format.
MENY is on a mission to help customers Eat Better and Liver Better by continually pushing boundaries of what supermarket retail can offer its customers, and in line with this mission, award-winning creative agency, Household, has designed a new concept store that bucks the trend in reducing counter service space.
On the other side of the world, the new 5,200 square foot flagship store at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) with retail design by Lumsden Design opened on 21st October, 2019 adjacent to the lobby of the museum. Intended to attract passers-by and ticketed museumgoers alike with dual entrances, the new retail position is clearly visible from various points within the Museum and seamlessly integrates into the overall Museum experience. Visitors to MoMA can now expect a dramatically remodelled front elevation, featuring an off-street entrance leading to a mezzanine bridge overlooking the new Museum Store.
Fortnum’s has opened a re-imagined confectionery department at their flagship Piccadilly store.
Fortnum & Mason has relaunched the confectionery department within its Piccadilly flagship store. Throughout its history, Fortnum & Mason has been synonymous with extraordinary food, exceptional service, unforgettable experiences and joy-giving gifts. Cocoa has been part of Fortnum’s product offer for over 160 years, with the shop recognised as one of the original purveyors of drinking chocolate in the 1860s, and chocolate later made by hand at 181 Piccadilly.
Fast forward to today; Fortnum’s is still an innovator and authority in both delicious and unexpected confectionery, last year bringing ‘the fourth type of chocolate,’ Ruby Chocolate to the UK for the first time.
With this and plenty more retail experiences to discover, it’s time to sit back and enjoy another issue of Premier Retail. Excelsior!
