Thursday night (yesterday) was such a great experience! I went to the store opening of Galeria Inno in Hasselt (Belgium) which was a big moment for everyone. 30 years ago we also had an Inno in Hasselt, everyone from then reminds that cause it was such a 'big thing' for that time and now it's totally back to it's roots, even on the same location. With its surface area of over 8,000 m2 you're entertained for a while. The store is absolutely gorgeous. They even sell 'Benefit'. How difficult is it to find that brand here in Belgium?! Oh and please, give me all those notebooks from above ;). Before I go crazy about this new store, you should definitely check it if you're in Hasselt one day. There's a big chance you'll find me there many times.
The main entrance, at 48-50 Koning Albertstraat, brings you directly onto the ground floor. In this airy space, you will find departments for leather goods, jewellery, perfume, fashion accessories, gadgets, stockings and tights. As ever, all the smartest brands are represented here, including Samsonite, DKNY, Kipling, Ice Watch and Longchamp, which enjoys a corner spot with display area….
On the first floor, you will find, in one place, all the fashion trends for women and children. They come into view through numerous corner spots, which afford each brand a great opportunity to give full expression to its world, whether it is Desigual’s Catalan exuberance, Caroll’s French elegance or Tommy Hilfiger’s casual chic. On the 2nd floor, you can visit Customer Services, where you will be able to collect and exchange your online orders placed using the new e-commerce service implemented at www.inno.be. You will also find the men’s fashion department here, with great brands such as Van Gils, Mc Gregor Distinction or Fred Perry. Moving on to the Home Section, you can find a host of decorative and household articles to brighten up your day. Some recognisable brands are Descamps, Essix, Hugo Boss, Nespresso and Lampe Berger. You will be able to draw endless inspiration, at this end-of-year period…. ( Text from ARK communication.)
