The “Power Store” concept is being expanded by Foot Locker, which opened its first Coast community-based Power Store in Compton, CA last Wednesday, Aug. 26.
This Power Store is all set to become the hub for local sneaker culture, art, music and sports. Exclusive artwork of local artists will be featured in the store, aligning with Foot Locker’s commitment to bring the optimal localized expression of its brand to customers. To support the Compton community, teammates have been recruited from within a five-mile radius of the store.
About the Store:
The store, spanning over 12,000 square feet, is located at 205 E Compton Blvd and offers an elevated retail experience, which includes full-family shopping, a curbside pickup window, as well as an activation space in order to host events for people obsessed with sneakers and are willing to adhere to physical distancing rules.
In order to extend the store’s “Home Grown” hyper-local product initiative, the store will also offer a tailored set of local brand exclusives along with limited-release products, which include Viva La Bonita, Ugly Primo, Mel Depaz and K.Swiss x Mike Reesé.
In order to create custom artwork for the store, Foot Locker has associated with renowned Los Angeles artists, Mel Depaz and AngelOnce, and the creations include a mural outside and digital canvas art inside.
To celebrate the opening, Foot Locker held neighborhood clean-ups and over the summer, it also established a community garden.
