Addicted To Retail (ATR) presents: Ubiq Grand Opening in Georgetown, Washington, DC.
The following is from UBIQ...
UBIQ is proud to announce the highly anticipated grand opening of our second flagship store in Georgetown, Washington, DC. Festivities run from 6-10PM, as we open our doors for the very first time outside of our original location on Walnut St., Philadelphia. Guests can expect food, drinks, special appearances (*Spoiler Alert: Wale, Biz Markie, etc.), and of course; limited sneaker re-releases. We will be doing a live raffle at 2PM so make sure to come by and ask the store for details.
From UBIQ’s inception in 2002, we have been the go-to destination for premium foot/menswear in our home city. As is our nature we refuse to stand still, but rather look to continually progress and add to our proud heritage and culture. Last year this ambition translated into re-establishing ourselves in the form of a redesigned storefront and the welcome added dimension of gallery space. Today, that same driving force has brought us here to share our passions, stories, and brand with an entirely new audience.
For the shop’s design we again enlisted the help of famed architect Jennifer Carpenter, the visionary behind the 2015 remodel of our UBIQ Walnut location. We inspired ourselves from the iconic Philadelphia shop’s lighting, reimagining it into a series of solid brass footwear impact fixtures. The historic brick walls, wood floor joists, and original wood ceiling remain in line with our aesthetic, while the pedestals, blackened steel hang bars, and antiqued mirror are all modeled after our Philadelphia space. The result is a design and finish that is reflective of both our brand identity and hard work.
The centerpiece of the new UBIQ Georgetown is our ATLAS feature, which draws from our mantra; The World Over. This features a collection of fashion and cultural magazines, as well as travel guides from around the globe.
