Storefront Partners with Obsess to Create the First-Ever Virtual Reality Pop-Up Stores to Rent

Storefront is pushing the boundaries of the retail industry by giving brands  for the first time ever the opportunity to rent Virtual Reality pop-up stores right on its platform. Retailers and e-commerce brands can now launch a virtual, fully customizable store powered by Obsess' VR technology, featuring their own inventory and choosing any layout, decor and style.


The « Future of Retail » is retail everywhere, according to Storefront


Storefront is making retail accessible to anyone in the world by now giving customers a unique selling and buying experience through Virtual Reality, in addition to its current retail space offerings. Now, anyone has the ability to experience a physical store with the ease of online shopping.


« We see this Virtual Reality pop-up store as creating a new category between e-commerce and a physical retail space. It’s a great in between...” » states Joy Fan, Storefront's CCO.


Examples of the Virtual Reality Pop-Up Stores:

-> Visit Manhattan

-> Visit San Francisco

-> Visit Los Angeles


Get a taste of (virtual) reality

With this new partnership with Obsess, brands and retailers can now easily book space through a New York City, Los Angeles, or San Francisco themed virtual store.


Now with this virtual pop-up store, e-commerce brands can get a branded store environment without the need to invest in a physical space—just yet. « Our goal is to bring the visual merchandising and curation of retail stores into online shopping to make it a more guided and enjoyable experience, » Obsess Founder & CEO Neha Singh explains.


By booking this virtual reality experience, brands will be able to increase digital engagement, reduce costs, create more traffic, and acquire new data.


A unique initiative that allows Storefront to open all doors to all ideas.
