On the 16th of February, I had the honor of attending the store opening of LC Waikiki at the Two Rivers Mall – an invite only launch event, that marked the store’s entry into the Kenyan market.
For those who dont know, LC Waikiki is a Turkish retail brand with stores in 35 countries worldwide, and their new and only store in Kenya is the first in the Sub-Saharan region of Africa, the main reason for the celebration.
The event was a cocktail type of event where the invited guests simply got a first view of the store before its public opening on the 17th of February; with several bitings and beverages to choose from. It was bascially an unstructured event where guests could come in and leave at their pleasure; and could walk around the store without restriction. Guests were also allowed to buy any item they liked from the store with the incentive of a 20% discount on all selected items.
My Plus One
My invite came with the ability to invite a plus one, to which I did; one of my close friends Kanyua.
Well Kanyua and I got interviewed by WhatsGood Live; an online entertainment network that was covering the event. You can find part of the interview on their Youtube Channel dubbed LC Waikiki.
More from the event
The store is actually one of, if not the biggest at Two Rivers, with two floors.
Bitings and Beverages
The event incorporated waiters walking around with small bitings from samosas to fruits on sticks as well as drinks. All the refreshments were on the house ofcourse.
Lucky for us, we got to leave with a goodie bag that comprised of a shirt, a wallet, a notebook, a pen and a bag; all branded LC Waikiki ofcourse.
Good vibes, good food, good theme and good event; i must say.
Thanks for the invite Redhouse.
PEACE, LOVE AND NJOONAMI
