Background

Build-A-Bear Workshop® in the USA pioneered their “Pop-Up” store concept during 2010 and plans to trial this concept in the UK were set for late 2010 & 2011 with 3 stores planned. The concept involved securing short-term leases in desired locations and keeping build out time and costs to the absolute minimum.

Sound Solutions were the natural choice for Build-A-Bear Workshop® given our now 60+ store experience and proven level of service.

What our client said...

" Just a short note to say thank you for delivering 3 new stores & 2 pop-ups this year. All 5 stores look furbulous and so far delivering what is expected of them. The crews have excelled again, as they always do and delivered in beary trying circumstances, particularly Westfield Stratford City. The feedback from Fenwick continues to be excellent and I am still reminded by them that Sound Solutions were the best company to have work in their store and that they wish others were like you... It goes without saying, but I must say that many things would not get delivered in Build-A-Bear Workshop® without the partnership and support of Sound Solutions. You are so integral to the business I do not know what I would do without your support and service delivery. On behalf of myself and Build-A-Bear Workshop® many thanks for 2011. "
