Barkers No1Store (1)

New Zealand menswear retailer, Barkers has opened its biggest store to date. No.1 High Street in Auckland is now home to the impressive 436sqm store that features its very own espresso bar ‘Burrs & Grind’ and men’s grooming room. The shop fit-out has been custom made to fit the status one heritage building space, right down to pressure mounted signs and awnings. Lighting and shelves are all free standing, as the fit out cannot be fixed to the walls or ceiling. Using the existing espresso bar as a counter, the space follows a 1920s prohibition theme. Names on the changing room doors reflect individuals who were anti prohibition laws. The store is also home to its very own made-to-measure division that acts as a store within a store, separate fitting room and counter. Matt Swan is running the Groom Room division that offers haircuts, wet shaves and whiskey. The new store truly is a one-stop shop for men. Barkers currently have 28 stores nationwide.
