- Sensational LINE FRIENDS collaboration products and limited editions offerings are now available at the LINE FRIENDS Store in Hysan Place, Causeway Bay
- The new store opening attracted 15,000 visitors and fans on its first day of opening
LINE, the world’s leading life platform, proudly opened the second phrase of its first-ever LINE FRIENDS Store in Hong Kong on 3 September 2015. The new store, located in Hysan Place, Causeway Bay, was overwhelmed by LINE FRIENDS fans and attracted over 15,000 visitors on opening day.
The impressive result follows the success of the store’s first phase opening, which has already sold about 30,000 LINE FRIENDS T-shirts and select products since its opening in early August (2015). LINE FRIENDS lovers in Hong Kong can now enjoy an exciting shopping experience with over 900 items, including hot new collaboration products such as LINE x Moleskin, LINE x Swarovski, LINE x be@rbrick and LINE x aiaiai. Also on sale are newly released and best-selling items, such as character coin pouches, Cony silicone iPhone cases, character umbrellas and a variety of sticker packages.
To celebrate the grand opening, limited edition Love Brown eco bags were also given out to shoppers who spent over HK$300 at the new LINE FRIENDS store.
At the same time, shoppers enjoyed more fun by participating in the “Brown©HK” campaign. Shoppers who took photos with the mega “Love Brown” figure – a symbol of eternal love sitting at the Kai Chiu Road entrance of Hysan Place – and posted it with a designated hashtag according to the rules, received a scratch card to redeem a LINE FRIENDS gift at the new store. The campaign will continue handing out scratch cards from 13:00 to 15:00 daily until 28 September 2015.
