Cass Art opens first store in a shopping centre
Cass Art has opened its first shopping centre store at London’s Westfield Stratford City.
The 1,300 square foot shop will sell the retailer’s range of art supplies including a large selection of children’s art materials and craft products.
Cass Art founder Mark Cass said: “We were thrilled to be asked to bring Cass Art to Westfield Stratford City, close by to the Olympicopolis arts hub. We’ve long admired the thriving arts scene in East London and look forward to being part of its ambitious future with the V&A, Sadler’s Wells and the London College of Fashion moving to the area over the coming years.”
The company is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year and in 2019 has opened three new stores as well as a pop-up shop in London’s Selfridges.
Cass Art now has a total of 16 stores including six in London, nine across the rest of the UK and a shop operating under a license arrangement in Qatar.
Cass added: “While our business continues to grow online, we’ve been especially heartened to see how customers are embracing the physical retail experience more than ever. They enjoy spending time in our stores and being guided in their choices by our in-store artists. Despite the ecommerce evolution and the difficult challenges facing the retail industry, I am convinced the traditional model still holds a vital place in society.”
