On Thursday, October 13, Anthropologie, Free People, Urban Outfitters and Pizzeria Vetri celebrated the opening of their new retail spaces in the Pavilion at the King of Prussia Mall (just outside of Philadelphia, PA), one of the top producing malls in the country. Hundreds of people came out to the preview event and enjoyed different activities at each store location.
At Anthropologie & Co., guests enjoyed a photo booth, a beauty bar, hors d’oevres and giveaways. Free People had word weaving mantra readings, an elixir and eye bar, vegetarian bites and a free aloha bag with any purchase. Urban Outfitters had a virtual reality station featuring UOTV's first-ever 360 video, a snapchat scavenger hunt, men’s grooming area and live performances from Japanese Breakfast and Hoops. Pizzeria Vetri had complimentary screen printed t-shirts and delicious pizza samples. King of Prussia is the only location where all of our brands are co-located next to one other, creating a one of a kind shopping experience.
