Foot Locker’s Local-Centric Concept Store
US sportswear retailer Foot Locker has launched two new-look London store concepts for its UK audience known as The Locker Room. The souped-up spaces aim to bring a flavour of the sporting world’s passionate sense of community to the shopping experience.
Designed by London-based design agency Dalziel + Pow, the bright interiors and simple layouts deliver larger-than-usual footwear seating areas and spacious fitting rooms, putting an emphasis on service as well as product in a bid to lure performance sports enthusiasts.
Embracing the potential value of global/local thinking, The Brent Cross store in North London also features what the brand’s labelling a ‘Community Sports Zone’. It includes interactive terminals under the banner ‘Be Connected, Be Involved’ that will promote and relay information on local sports clubs and events.
