CURRY POP-UP SHOP
On May 28th, 2018 The Golden State Warriors beat the Houston Rockets and made their way into the NBA Championship against the Cleveland Cavaliers. With Steph Curry shining on the national stage, UA saw a perfect opportunity to drop a limited edition line of Curry 5 shoes. However, they didn’t want a predictable, run-of-the-mill sneaker drop. They wanted something special – something timely and something to wow warriors fans.
The Pineapple Agency, and RED Interactive decided to team up to build a pop-up retail experience that would premiere during the Warrior parade in Oakland, California.The pop-up needed to be in market 2 days after the Warriors won the finals. If the Warriors swept the series, this meant The Pineapple Agency would have just 12 days to secure and transform a location into a pop-up shop.
The Warriors swept the finals and The Pineapple Agency jumped into production turning a construction zone into a retail store. The shop would only stay open two days to provide the feeling of true exclusivity.
The Pineapple Agency immediately scouted locations in downtown Oakland and secured a 5,000 sq. ft retail space right along the parade route.
We designed the concept from the inside out- putting up walls, putting down flooring, sourcing furniture, installing retail displays, covering walls in graphics and even putting a custom Under Armour basketball court in the center of the space. We completed the space with a 30-foot LED wall playing custom motion graphics and a VR experience.
The store opened right on time, on the day of the parade with a line of hundreds of people waiting to get their hands on the limited edition shoes.
