The MOO Shop at BOXPARK brings MOO website to life
25 Feb, 2013 London UK: MOO.COM, the online print business, is launching its first venture into the world of bricks and mortar, with the opening of a retail store at No. 27, BOXPARK, Shoreditch. Creating a unique and inspiring environment for customers to touch, feel and design their own business cards, the MOO Shop will bring the Tech City firm’s successful online brand to the high street.
Staffed by the MOO Crew, the MOO Shop will display visually stunning and beautifully designed Business Cards, MiniCards and other print products.
With MOO.COM brought to life, shop visitors can compare products and paper stocks and even customise their own designs with embossing if they wish, as well as purchase moo.com vouchers and accessories in-store. Customers can also create their designs online and then collect in-store – offering both the convenience of picking up orders on the way home and saving money on post and packaging.
Richard Moross, CEO and Founder of MOO, explains: “Personal branding and beautiful design is so important to our customers that we wanted them to be able to actually touch and experience it – the MOO Shop is the perfect way for them to interact with our products and experience first-hand what they see online. MOO is constantly innovating and looking for new ways to excite our customers and this mix of online and offline is the perfect combination.”
After hours, the MOO Shop will be opening its doors to events for small businesses, creative professionals, start-ups, entrepreneurs and freelancers, with inspirational speakers on hand each week to advise, encourage and share experiences on a range of topics, from design to funding.
Streamed live to MOO’s ever growing community, the first session will be with Emma Jones of Enterprise Nation on 6 March: “It’s an honour to be invited to speak at MOO’s first ever retail experience. The concept of the MOO Shop and its commitment to creating a fun, interactive environment is totally in keeping with the MOO philosophy and wholeheartedly supported by Enterprise Nation.” A list of upcoming events can be found on the MOO site:(www.moo.com/shop).
Since it was founded by Richard Moross in 2006, MOO.COM has become the personal branding site for creative professionals, small businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs. Passionate about branding, identity and design, MOO is one of the early prominent success stories of London’s Tech City.
