At the service area at the newly opened George Street store
Hello Sydney, this is great news for us, and especially if you love your designer brand names to the likes of Burberry, Miu Miu, Jimmy Choo and Prada to name. Online retailer Reebonz has gone against the flow by setting up a store on George Street, following on from the success of setting up shop in Singapore.
Best of all the handbags, wallets, shoes and other fashion accessories are fully authentic. Reebonz wants their fans to come offline and into their stores. Just like with online purchases; buying designer goods with multiple brands in the one place has just become oh so fashionable. Judging by the lines of people waiting to get in just after opening time at 10am today (as at the time of writing this), as well as the abundance of shoppers inside; this concept is bound to take off.
Two sets of lines to get in on opening day
The items are fully authentic, and expect around 70% off the standard retail price of such goods. This is making designer paradise affordable. A real retail paradise of high quality goods. Give it time, the crowds might wear off, yet Reebonz is tipped to become ever so popular. Why? In a designer retail first, Reebonz is offering all of their customers a lifetime service guarantee on handbags purchased from any one of the 120 designers on board. Beyond the purchase, they will assist in the ongoing maintenance, and will help you re-sell your bag, if and when that time comes.
Luxury paradise, and so busy in here.
Apart from guaranteeing 100% authenticity, Reebonz also offers two months interest free lay by terms in making your handbag (and other goods) even more affordable.
It is bucking the trend, and now it's interesting to see a purely online fashion retailer wanting to digress offline, and into a physical bricks and mortar store. If you happen to be reading this article on Thursday the 18 April 2013 before 9pm, you still have a great chance to enjoy the opening day experience at the Sydney store, 570 George Street Sydney. There is a lucky dip upon entering, and who knows, you might be lucky enough to nab a 99% opening day discount on selected purchases.
