The 1,122 sq ft flagship store situated in the city centre of Singapore is POP MART’s first store in Southeast Asia.
This new store adds to the brand’s presence in Asia and will support the company’s growth plans outside of China, where POP MART operates more than 136 retail stores and over 1,001 Roboshop vending machines in 33 cities.
Located at the main level of Funan, this inaugural POP MART store features a futuristic concept with the sleek and easy-to-shop interior with wide aisles and eye-popping visual and merchandising concepts to provide shoppers with a delightful shopping experience. POP MART official store in Singapore is wholly owned and managed by POP MART South Asia Pte. Ltd., a joint venture between POP MART GLOBAL and ACTION CITY, a homegrown retail chain with 20 years of expertise in the business of collectable pop-culture art toys and strong community presence in Asia.
A platform for local and regional artists to grow beyond their existing profile Being a part of the exciting store opening are Singaporean sculptor Daniel Yu’s The Lunar Creep, all 3 versions of the AP-2K by Singapore-based artist, Wetworks, and Singapore-based illustrator and toy designer Jessica Emmett’s resin toys from the Draffi Pup series and Unicorn series, along with the product features by local and regional artists, Kong Andri, GAGATREE and Sean Studio, who have created quirky Looney Tunes merchandise such as Sylvester & Tweety, Sylvester OBOT and Bugs Bunny.
A deliberate focus on the products created by these local and regional artists on the opening day of the Singapore store perfectly aligns with POP MART’s direction of grooming budding artists by providing opportunities for them to showcase their creations and assisting them in areas that they might not have had the capacity to take on alone.
POP MART exclusives available only at Funan To celebrate the opening of POP MART’s first official Southeast Asia flagship store, exclusives and gifts that are only available at the Funan store will be released.
Pucky Rose Knight Baby Figure Introducing the star of the show, the Pucky Rose Knight Baby is a Singapore-exclusive collectible figure, specially designed to celebrate this exciting occasion.
