Written by Rother Radio News on 30/09/2020
A quirky shop all about stationery, homeware and kitchenware is set to open up the doors at Meadowhall.
Japanese inspired Kenji is opening three stores in the North of England as part of its plans to open 200 retail stores in the UK by 2025.
The store in Meadowhall, which is expected to open by the end of the year, will also create 20 jobs for the area.
The retailer currently has four sites, in Warrington, Preston, Bury, Manchester and recently opened a site in Liverpool One.
KENJI’s head of operation Derek Yong said: “KENJI aims to disrupt the way retail is traditionally experienced by curating an immersive retail space, allowing customers to explore not just the products but the story behind it, and bring back the excitement to shopping which was once the defining feature of the high street.”
Their new concept will feature a food hall, mini arcade and in-house KENJI Kafé, to encourage “seamless brand experience and social media sharing”, it said.
Kenji also said the store will facilitate ‘community-based hubs’ with retail space for local curated makers, which will refresh every two weeks.
