Airport-themed store makes travel shopping fun
AN AIRPORT-THEMED STORE WITH THE MOVING MONIKER OF 1000MILES is taking flight in Hong Kong, offering a one-stop shop for travel and outdoor accessories against a backdrop that includes boarding passes and a mini-baggage handling system.
The design comprises three parts. The right side of the store is filled of travel ideas. Flags of various countries, boarding passes, and travel destinations serve as the design’s background.
To the left, a shoe fitting zone resembles a boarding area. At the center, a cashier with baggage conveyor represents the check-in counter. A runway area in front of the cashier features VR technology.
The retailer reports that the store’s motivational name takes inspiration from a famous Chinese proverb, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” The quotation is from Dao De Jing of Lao Tzu, according to 1000MILES.
The store, located in Ma On Shan, includes sports apparel, shoes, backpacks, safety accessories, and outdoor accessories from such brands as Hoka One One, Merrell, PacSafe, and The North Face. There’s also travel accessories such as a mini wireless iron, portable coffee tumbler, mini camera, and smart phone accessories.
