Yep, that's what they will do. Will open in September.

Clearly a part of their renewed deal with UMG (2018). Stones merchandise belongs to the deal.

Here is their own video ad:

Will they never stop copying The Beatles?

The Rolling Stones will premiere a world exclusive flagship store, ‘RS No 9’ at 9 Carnaby Street in London’s Soho, on 9 September, 2020.

Perhaps they'll get Yoko to do the opening?

From the Press Release:

"The store will also introduce ‘Stones Red,’ the official colour from Pantone which is established from the first use of the band’s iconic logo. A collection celebrating the Rolling Stones official Pantone colour will also launch with the store."

A few of you may know this but I am also a Pantone collector! See my Christmas tree below. The Sticky Fingers Display gives the photo added relevance...

Carnaby Street is full of tat nowadays, no? I suppose the Stones’ 60’s connection and that the street was once a fashionable place to be seen, is the reason they’ve decided to open there. Wasn’t Liam Gallagher’s clothing boutique located there, too?

Seems odd to be opening a store at this point in time. Maybe things are better in England than in Florida, USA.

Will be interesting to see the longevity of this tbh.. definitely not a "pop-up" cool smiley

Also will be interesting to see if/when they add more, as seems to be the plan.
"Described as the band’s “world-first flagship store”.."

Also sounds like it may be a bit tied in with the Exhibitionism concept, my hunch is that this was long part of the plan for post-exhibitionism..

It's becoming a bit like Disneyland with it's Disney stores- a safe and friendly family version of the Stones that sells overpriced trinkets, stuffed dolls, clothing, etc. to tourists, cashing in on relics from their past.

That's what I thought too, since a day-visit in this Store could take 29 days - 14 days quarantine when entering the UK plus another 14 days quarantine when you're back in your homeland .... winking smiley

They say that this is a first, but I distinctly remember them having a pop-up shop in Carnaby Street maybe around the time of the 2012 London shows? Because I went to it and have pics, mostly of the leather jacket I couldn't afford.

It appears to me that this could be the next stage of preparing for the 60th anniversary. It proves someone somewhere thinks Stones related merchandise will be popular for the foreseeable future, and that's really only going to happen if they come back hard with an album and all sorts of events for next year and 2022. I would not be surprised if there were another single or two.

In the 80's or 90's I would, probably, have appreciated such a store. And probably visited it when in London. By now? I don't think so.
I think they already have flooded the market. I'm full. I wouldn't consider even a wafer-thin mint...

Maybe there're similar items for sale like during the NoFilter US-Tour 2019 - [iorr.org] or in 2018 in London at Sell Fridges -erm- Selfridges - [iorr.org] .

Are they going to sell any exclusive music there? If not, don't see the need what with the on line presence.

[Hypebeast.com] : "... plenty of pieces featuring the band’s iconic John Pasche-designed tongue logo." -- could also be the 50th Anniversary of the Tongue&Lips logo in April 2021 ....

It's really for the people that have ordered things and never gotten them...

Thats funny, just go there and show them the transaction on your phone and you're golden!

Does look like a nice classy joint though. I wonder when they will have guest appearances, probably Ronnie since he is in the neighborhood sorta. I doubt Charlie would bother.

If I were in the area, I would check it out just because.

I want a t-shirt with Mickey and Mick on it. Also a coffee mug with Donald Duck and Keith playing guitar!

I get the reference, Mick. And so much better new merch, than a new album. Who'd want that?! Better perseveration of merch...

Re: New Stones shop in Carnaby Street

So the store is opening on 09/09, presumably at 0909am.........?

Any idea if some of the Stones (Ronnie?) might show up for grand opening?
