Fashion retailer French Connection is opening its first pop-up “convenience store” in Old Street station to allow commuters to pick up online orders.
The 1,000 sq ft click-and-collect shop, which the retailer has named F by French Connection, will enable customers to order online and pick up in store. Products ordered before 1pm can be collected after 5pm.
The shop opens on September 1 in time for peak trading, and will remain open for four months. It will stock a selection of gifts and key pieces from its autumn 2014 collection.
French Connection has partnered with Appear Hear, a marketplace for pop-up space, and TfL to launch the Old Street store.
The retailer said it would consider opening small outlets in other transport hubs.
