HomeGoods Is Creating Pop-Up Staycations That You Can Shop
After spending the last year tucked away at home, many are eager to get out and enjoy favorite activities once again. If your idea of a good time is a hybrid of a staycation and cruising the scented candle aisle at HomeGoods, listen up, because an exciting new experience is potentially coming your way.
Set to pop-up in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, HomeGoods Hideouts will be a fun twist on the traditional retail and travel experiences. According to a release, the Hideouts are described as “a private oasis specifically designed to help consumers rediscover joy and reset with exciting décor and delightful ways to escape, restore and recharge from a hectic everyday life.” Each location will have a stylistically distinct theme: New York will be “Restore,” Chicago will be “Escape,” and Los Angeles will be “Recharge.”
There will be several unique features of each Hideout. In addition to living spaces that features cozy sleeping areas, luxe bathrooms, and stylish sitting areas, there will be unique features like a “Magic Phone,” which will be placed within each Hideout as a direct line to the Hideout-dedicated concierge team to provide guests with all they need. There will also be virtual tarot card reading sessions, DIY crafts, spa essentials, not-for-kids candy-centric cocktails and several more surprises that are aimed at “helping consumers rediscover themselves.” Hey, if it helps you take a break from constant Zoom meetings, then go for it!
And since you’ve probably never left a HomeGoods store empty-handed, guests will be able to take home select merchandise. In the same way that the store’s merchandise is constantly changing, each space will be newly transformed to provide a unique and unexpected experience for each guest.
Only a lucky few will be able to snag a spot in a HomeGoods Hideout. According to a press release, 15 lucky guests will be able to book the Hideouts. If you’re interested in scoring a spot, you can submit your entry from May 4 – May 9, and the getaways will take place between May 20 – June 28.
