FAB.com opens Antwerp pop-up store

American online warehouse Fab.com will open a pop-up store in Antwerp, to get rid of excess supplies. The temporary store will be housed in a 'start-up incubator' just off of the main shopping street Meir.

Meir in London's footsteps

"More than 5,000 items with discounts of 50 to 80 %”, Fab Europe promises its Antwerp customers. It will mainly be overstock or things that will soon be taken out of the catalogue. Every possible range of products in its catalogue will be offered in its Antwerp store, from technological gadgets to furniture and lights.

 

Fans of the American web shop can visit the store at Idealabs from 25 January to 15 February. The Antwerp shopping neighbourhood will follow London's example, where Fab.com had already created a temporary store.

 

"Our aim has always been to make a creative hotspot in Antwerp, with a mix of digital and analogue and offline. Fab, an online retail store opening a physical pop up shop at our location, is a mixture we love to support”, Idealabs told our reporter.
