StockX has announced that it’s opening its first permanent physical store later this year. The brick-and-mortar StockX location will be in New York at 237 Lafayette Street and follows a series of “drop-off” pop-up locations in New York, Los Angeles, and London.
The store, only a short walk from Supreme’s OG Lafayette Street location (currently under renovation), will accept all deadstock sneakers and streetwear, and will offer on-site authentication and payment processing. That means sellers can eliminate the need to ship goods and will get paid quicker as a result. The company is also opening an authentification center in the Netherlands, its fifth.
In addition to the New York store opening, StockX has announced that it will be adding a “collectibles” section to its site, following the addition of luxury handbags and watches in 2017. This will be the first time the site has sold something other than wearable goods, including products such as KAWS figures and toys, [email protected], Takashi Murakami artworks, and more.
