Bandai expands presence in the UK with a new collection of stores
Bandai Namco Amusement Europe Ltd is set to open a new collection of stores in the UK, following the success of the first Cross store in Camden Market. The opening is scheduled for November 14 at London's Victoria Place, with more openings planned across the country.

These new stores will celebrate the rich range of Bandai Namco brands, offering GASHAPON collectibles, Ichibankuji, and Sun-Star stationery products. With the growing popularity of Japanese pop culture in the UK, driven by anime, manga, and video games, Bandai Namco aims to provide a physical and digital experience for fans.

GASHAPON collectibles are vending machines that provide capsules containing Bandai's collectible miniatures. Ichibankuji offers rare prizes and collectibles through a ticketing system. Sun-Star Stationery, part of the Bandai Namco Group, creates cute and practical stationery items, immersing customers in the world of "Practi-Kawaii."

John McKenzie, MD of Bandai Namco Amusement Europe, expressed enthusiasm for expanding the company's physical experiences outside of Japan, celebrating fan passion and providing a new unique offering in the UK market.
