iSTYLE opens Pop-Up in Beirut and starts new chapter in the growth of the brand
iSTYLE Pop-Up: bringing new energy to the high street, increasing reach of Apple products into new regions, different demographics
iSTYLE has opened a new, small Pop-Up retail site in Beirut. The iSTYLE Pop-Up, which opened on July 5, 2022 in the ABC Mall in Achrafieh, is a small retail unit of around 22sqm with an important emphasis on selling and showing the latest Apple products with energy and flair.
Architect Marine Bustros, founder of mb Design Studios, has created the vision for the new iSTYLE Pop-Up and optimised the space so it can offer the full Apple experience in a smaller than usual footprint. The new brand is an important strategic move for iSTYLE. According to Edmond Hamati, iStyle Business Development Manager for Lebanon and Morocco, the company devised the new format as a way to explore smaller business locations and different customer demographics.
The new format is also a chance to try to explore different approaches to engage with customers. “The people we are hiring for iSTYLE Pop-Up are young and energetic,” explained Edmond Hamati. “It’s a shop for everyone, where there is lots of energy and music in store. Because of its small space concept, it makes it possible for iSTYLE to be everywhere very quickly. It’s a good way to create more awareness of iSTYLE and the Apple brand.”
