Ankorstore announces brand partnership with Mary Portas
Online marketplace Ankorstore has embarked on a brand partnership with retail expert and broadcaster Mary Portas.
The collaboration will take a close look at the current state of British independent retail through reports and trend forecasting. Portas will also participate in an exclusive roundtable event for retailers and media, and host a content series that will aim to inform and inspire budding new entrepreneurs.
This summer, Ankorstore is celebrating its first anniversary in the UK. The company now has over 200,000 retailers and over 15,000 brands in the European region.
Ankorstore recently unveiled its rebrand alongside its vision to ‘Rewild Retail’ which will see the company harness the power of technology to return independent shops to the heart of local communities.
Jina Kwon, deputy general manager at Ankorstore UK, said: “As a European curated marketplace for independent retailers and brands, we are thrilled to announce our partnership with British retail expert Mary Portas. As a brand advocate, Mary embodies Ankorstore’s own values and beliefs, supporting and giving a voice to independent businesses throughout her career.
“At Ankorstore, our mission is to level the playing field for small and independent retailers who are the backbone of the UK economy, especially after the hardships of Brexit and Covid, to ensure a more evenly balanced retail ecosystem. We are excited to have Mary on board as we work to ‘rewild retail’ expanding our platform and giving our growing community the tools they need to thrive.”
