Birmingham has, for a while now, been without strong representation in the streetwear store department. The Candy Store was at one point one of the go-to destinations for streetwear in the country, with a whole scene surrounding it, rivaling other hotspots like London and Bristol. This obviously meant massive disappointment for Birmingham heads when the store closed it’s doors, leaving them without a friendly, local regular. Good news is, The Candy Store is set to make it’s return in a matter of weeks, with a bigger and better roster of brands.
Not much is known about the store’s return yet, except a rough date in 6 weeks time, and a list of the brands you can expect to find inside. Everything from staples like The Hundreds, Mishka, 10.DEEP, Diamond Supply Co and Crooks & Castles, to a few of the harder to come by US brands like Black Scale and Durkl. Additionally, you can also expect to find items from a select number of UK brands, including Jilted Royalty, Trapstar and Ichiban.
This is big news for Birmingham and the surrounding scene (as well as the country as a whole), and I’m really excited to see it return. All we have for now are some digital mock-ups of what the store should look like, but it’s already something to look forward to. Stay locked for information on the big launch, but for now, keep your eyes on The Candy Store for more news.
