Get ready: the world’s largest flagship Disney store is set to open in Shanghai’s Lujiazui financial district on the afternoon of May 20.
More than 50 workers are now working in overdrive to complete construction of the establishment as half of the participating stores have already moved into the site, jfdaily reports.
The 5,000-square-meter Disney Store will feature a state-of-the art retail space and an outdoor plaza with Disney-themed landscaping, according to the Walt Disney China.
The actual retail space covers just one fifth of the area, and will offer Disney-related products, such as toys, clothes and accessories. The rest of the area will occupied by the outdoor plaza, with the capacity to host exhibitions and entertainment facilities.
“The flagship Disney store will feature the largest and most diverse collection of Disney products by local and international designers,” said Stanley Cheung, executive vice president and managing director of Disney China.
Visitors will also be able to track the progress of the currently under-construction Shanghai Disney Resort, which is scheduled to open in the first half of 2016. Maybe.
We think we can already make out the queue to the store forming in the distance.
