At long last, Directioners now have to opportunity to purchase all their One Direction paraphernalia in one place: the One Direction pop-up store! The first of its kind in North America, the store will be open for business this Saturday!
Fans can purchase exclusive merchandise like t-shirts, calendars and posters that won’t be available anywhere else. It was decided that the store should open in Toronto because the band discovered that they have some pretty passionate fans in this city – perhaps the most passionate in all of North America! The store is their way of thanking you all for your support.
To make this even more exciting, customers who go to the store on its opening day will be entered for a chance to win tickets to One Direction’s concert when they come back to Toronto on July 9 and 10 in 2013. Considering how everyone in Toronto has apparently caught One Direction Infection, getting your hands on tickets closer to the date won’t be all that easy, so this contest will come in handy for those who would do anything to see the boys perform live. Other prizes will also be up for grabs.
The pop-up event launches this Saturday and will be open until Sept. 2. The store is located at 680 Younge Street, in walking distance from Bloor subway station. Store hours are from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., so line up early to get your hands on the best products!
