Rolling Stones Store Opens in London
09 Sep 2020
The Rolling Stones are opening their first flagship store, RS No.9 Carnaby
today on London's iconic Carnaby Street selling merchandise and music. The shop was jointly curated by The Rolling Stones and Bravado, Universal Music Group's merchandise firm.
'Soho has always encapsulated rock'n'roll, so Carnaby Street was the perfect spot for our own store,' the Rolling Stones said in a statement.
Painted entirely in black and red and filled with items featuring the band's famous logo, the shop includes a glass floor featuring Stones song lyrics, screens showing footage of the band on tour and fitting rooms with album artwork from Exile on Main St
and Some Girls
. At the front of the shop is a red metal sculpture that fans will recognise as being based on the opening of the 1968 track 'Paint It Black'.
If the London store takes off, others could follow in New York, Brazil and other European cities.
