Mere combines hospitality and retail in first flagship venue [sponsored]
After establishing themselves as a footwear brand, with a presence in retail stores across Australia, Mere has launched a concept outlet, with a combined caf and retail experience in one venue.
Situated on a quiet part of Bondi road, the new caf and store is a hidden gem featuring a courtyard and designed to appeal to all senses. The established footwear brand is focused on creating a shared space, offering a caf setting – to be used and enjoyed by consumers – rather than a transaction driven retail environment.
Serving healthy favourites, including simple brekky options, banh mi lunch rolls, and assorted pastries alongside sensational coffee from Single O, the courtyard is a specific point of difference, separating Mere caf from neighbouring venues.
More than just a caf or footwear store, the new hub is perfect for socialising, looking for inspiration or exploring creative outlets, and brings something different to an often overlooked stretch of Bondi road.
Given the national presence of Mere footwear, the local Bondi team hopes to welcome locals and travellers to their first flagship store. Loyal followers can satiate their dreams of coffee and leather at the brand’s caf and retail Instagram pages and mere.com.au – in the pipeline are plans for a liquor license and wine bar, venue hire and events, art exhibitions, workshops and more. Feedback is welcome, so drop them a line!
The brand will be holding a rare end-of-season sale with discounts of up to 50 percent off to make way for summer stock on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 July – the perfect excuse to stop in for a coffee and a chat.
Mere caf is open daily from 8am.
