Boohoo has picked New York for its first pop-up store

The branded pop-up shop will open for three weeks on Broadway and will be marketed through a series of events.

It opens on October 30 and will be open seven days a week from 11am to 7pm. joint chief executive Carol Kane said the company has chosen New York for its first pop-up store because “the American market continues to be a key focus for Boohoo”.

She added: “We want the consumer to be able to experience our brand first hand and at the pop-up visitors will be able to touch and feel the product and order straight from site.”

Boohoo’s first foray into bricks-and-mortar retailing comes as it seeks to hire its first ecommerce director after pre-tax profits soared in its first six months as a listed business. reported pre-tax profit up 23% to £4.5m in the six months to August 31, 2014.

In the first half of the year, sales outside of the UK and Europe, which includes Australia, dropped 11%.

However, Kane said dropping prices in the second quarter had returned the retailer to growth in Australia.
