The exclusive 1D World Store will be opening in Vancouver. It will be only open for a limited time, giving One Direction fans access to limited edition 1D merch including posters, t-shirts and more. The store opens Saturday December 8, 2012 at 9am. The pop up store will be located at 929 Granville Street in Downtown Vancouver.
Global pop music sensation One Direction will open the first 1D World retail store in the Pacific Northwest at 929 Granville Street in Vancouver on December 8, 2012 at 9:00 am.
The chart-topping boy band is giving their fans the opportunity to experience a true 1D world. For a limited time, “Directioners” will have access to exclusive merchandise and the chance to win One Direction prizes.
With the recent release of their new album “Take Me Home”, which has reached No 1. in 32 countries, fans will have another reason to celebrate with merchandise such as posters, calendars, t-shirts, and much more to complete their 1D experience.
One Direction is making boy band history, as few pop acts can boast having a debut album (Up All Night) reach No. 1 in 15 countries, over 500 million views on YouTube and millions of loyal fans from around the world impatiently waiting for the next tweet.
The original 1D World debuted in Australia, with thousands of young fans lining up hours in advance, chanting and singing their favourite One Direction tunes. The Vancouver launch comes on the heels of the recent New York City 1D World opening.
“These stores have excited fans all over the world, and we’re already seeing an outpouring of One Direction affection in Vancouver,” said Barry Drinkwater, Managing Director of Global Merchandising Services, the event merchandising organization responsible for 1D World launches all over the globe.
As the holiday season approaches, One Direction fans will have the opportunity to give back to the local community by bringing a non-perishable food item for donation to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank at the 1D World Vancouver opening. By donating a food item, Directioners will be entered to win coveted merchandise.
The band will play a Vancouver show in 2013.
