Retail News: Hello World’s New University City Megastore Is Now Open
The vast 2,000-square-foot store at 3610 Sansom Street opened today. It’s still a work in progress, but already the stuff there—from gifty goods to larger furniture and upholstery—looks fantastic.
As previously reported, the new store is the shopping love child of Hello World and Hello Home, and will feature handbag and jewelry lines, Chilewich tabletop and flooring, goods from Umbra, a MoMA retail section, and a gift shop of sorts for the Institute of Contemporary Art. But what to really look out for: the debut of owner James Lamancuso’s new private-label line of custom upholstery and chairs, called Hello Home.
Head over and visit now—the store is open until 7pm Monday through Friday—and keep up with the store’s progress on Instagram. (They give great sneak peeks of incoming merchandise.)
Welcome to the (new) neighborhood, guys!
