Find & Meet something new at Meetz STORE, a showrooming store opens on April 29

Five curators who produce new discovery under five themes

TAKASHIMAYA TRANSCOSMOS INTERNATIONAL COMMERCE PTE. LTD. (Headquarters: Singapore; Managing Director, CEO: Takahiro Kawaguchi; TTIC; a joint venture of Takashimaya Company, Limited. and transcosmos inc.), is delighted to announce that Meetz STORE, our retail store designed specifically for showrooming will open in Takashimaya Shinjuku store on April 29, 2022.

The Meetz STORE will bring items under the themes of gourmet, genderless lifestyle, beauty, arts & crafts, and ethical.

Meetz STORE: Purpose

Meetz STORE, a store specifically designed for showrooming, presents items that you can hardly find in department stores, and makes you delight at new discoveries.

Covid-19 and other recent trends induced changes in our lifestyle.

To meet the changing consumer buying behavior, we have decided to open the Meetz STORE with the aim to bring new value to consumers by creating a touchpoint with a wide range of customers including the young who don’t regularly visit department stores.

Meetz STORE: Space design concept

Make the showrooming store – where digital meets physical- a place where customers enjoy an analogue shopping experience.

With that in mind, we designed the space to create a minimal world view that embraces diverse items with different product personalities by leveraging one of Takashimaya’s key strengths as a department store; editing expertise.

Make each item take the center stage in a world of white. On display stands of diverse shapes, every item stands out, whilst simple and flat floor space brings out the distinctive charm of each brand.

Branding and interior are designed by George Creative Company (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President: George Amano).

Meetz STORE presents brands under five themes; gourmet, genderless lifestyle, beauty, arts & crafts, and ethical. Product offerings include items chosen by our five expert curators with a savvy in their respective themes.
