The Candy Store re-opening

Birmingham is about to get a boost in it’s stake on the streetwear map, as it’s dominant retail force, The Candy Store,  re-opens in a new location this Friday.

To celebrate the re-launch, the store are offering 20% off all product to anyone who ‘checks in’ via facebook. The new store will stock a number of the staple US brands such as 10Deep, The Hundreds, Diamond Supply Co. and Mishka, but will also be stocking product from UK brands like Trapstar, Jilted Royalty and Ichiban.

Birmingham has needed a strong retail spot ever since the last incarnation of The Candy Store closed, so it’s great to finally see it back again. I have no doubt that the new store will be a huge success, and I’m expecting a big turn out on the opening day. If you’re local, make sure you stop by this weekend, and for everyone else, The new Candy Store is definitely going to be worth a visit on your next trip. More about the opening on facebook.

    Stock Ichiban, loose all credibility. Bad move.

    Gonna make the trek up someday soon

  • RIQO

    WHY IS THAT J?

  • Ichiban Clothing Ltd

    J – We understand that people will have their own views on whatever they perceive is good, bad or indifferent. Ichiban are a growing brand in the UK & Europe and well established in certain regions. We are 100% behind all the brands choosen at The Candy Store and also their buying ability and acumen. I’d be keen to understand the reasons for your “credibility” and “bad move” comments and how these are justified. Thanks

  • bundem

    most credible streetwear stores stock ichiban and thers a good reason for that, seems the only credibility lost is with J

  • RIQO

    HEAR HEAR BUNDEM. GRAPHICALLY THEY ARE ONE OF THE STRONGEST UK BRANDS AROUND.

  • Mags

    J entitled to his opinion, not everyones going to agree or like your shit,

    And Ichiban why are you bothered about what he likes, your brand isnt designed to please everyone, you have a target market and he obviously isnt it, so you asking him why he doesnt like your brand in my opinion just gave your brand a bad reflection.

  • Mags

    Its lame that clothing brands come here defending their brand, go do some work and leave us to express our opinions init, thats why you submitted your shit to thedailystreet in the first place, if you dont like the responses, work harder, If this is what this blog has come to, im out.

    Me personally I dont like catchphrase brands, the whole ‘get money’ concept is beyond a joke to me, so that’s why I think it loses credibility for The Candy Store, sorry but that’s my opinion. But whatever anyway I’ll sign out and leave you with this video…..

  • RIQO

    MAGS – EVERYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO SAY WHATEVER THEY WANT ON HERE. THAT MEANS BRANDS ALSO. IT’S CALLED DEBATE…..

  • J

    **** Sent that off my phone and the link doesn’t work. Couldn’t let the video go unseen… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2CQTnYcFGg

  • Ichiban Clothing Ltd

    J – appreciate your feedback. Thanks.

  • Mags

    LOOOOOOOOL @ that video
    and Riqo brands shouldnt involve themsevles in debates, they should take constructive criticism in silence. I may be wrong but have you ever seen trapstar reply to comments on here?
    No, (correct me if im wrong) because it gives the brand a bad look. Brands should let their clothing speak for them.

  • RIQO

    CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG BUT ICHIBAN DIDNT DO THIS POST??

  • THEBOSS

    Cant say Id ever heard of the brand, I know shops like to endorse UK brands and they’ve got Trapstar which is definitely a good call, whether you love them, hate them, don’t care about them…they’re big in the UK scene, they’ve been doing it before all the new hype kids joined and they have had a serious cult following as well as bring out a range of apparel way before everyone else in the underground scene.

    On the other hand Blck Scvle, guys come on…a brand that uses t-shirt templates to display their online shop, most of those designs I’ve seen have been done by other brands, example a. look at False who did the LV logo with snakes…enough said.

    and Jilted Royalty although he’s from Birmingham, its so bad.

    I thought The Candy Store was Birminghams answer to The Hideout, not another typical streetwear shops, I know bills gotta be paid but just choose better smaller brands or get some decent exclusives in.

  • Luke

    @THEBOSS whats exactly wrong with Jilted Royalty, what makes it ‘so bad’?
