Goal: With the changing face of retail, TLG partnered with GGP to launch a revolving store concept that helps introduce e-commerce brands to consumers in an offline, physical setting while enabling brands to learn about their consumers and see if a new location is viable for the longer term. In addition, mall operator GGP has the power to learn which brands have potential for long-term tenancies.

Lionesque: TLG fully developed the program and space from the ground up including creating all branded aspects of the store, curation of brands, development of monthly membership program, design and production of the space, operational management, and on-going marketing & in-store event strategies.

Results: A total of 15 e-commerce brands were showcased in the first chapter of IRL, with 80% viable for long-term tenancy. The innovative concept drew attention from local and national media including articles in Chicago Tribune, Glossy, WWD, Design: Retail, among others and garnered 11.3 million impressions.
