The day has finally come. The insanely popular clothing brand, Shein, is making its way into a physical pop-up location.
It’s set to open right in Toronto at the Stackt Market from July 15-17 and will be the first brick-and-mortar store of its kind in Canada.
Known for its incredibly inexpensive apparel, footwear, home decor, and pretty much anything else you need, the brand has caused quite a controversy over the years. The low price point is a major selling factor for Shein, but it most definitely is a massive player in fast fashion.
Now that we know the fashion industry is a top cause of pollution, it can be very difficult to support the brand.
Shein continues to have such a high amount of trendy inventory on hand that’s not being made sustainably whatsoever. Another viral dispute with the brand is the poor working conditions that the employees are put through.
Many of the time, the clothing is not true to size and can also look quite different in person than online. Of course, having a physical store will eliminate that issue when shopping in person.
Aside from this knowledge, it’s still a huge seller for teens who are on the hunt to upgrade their wardrobe without breaking the bank.
Tickets for the Shein pop-up event are already sold out, but there will be another line for walk-ins. You can expect that line to be quite steady for the three days.
