Within Japan, GEO Holdings has more than 2,000 shops and EC stores, including GEO Shops, which sell and rent DVDs, CDs, and video games, and 2ND STREET, which handles the sales of a comprehensive selection of used products, including clothing, furniture, and appliances. Beginning in 2018, the first 2ND STREET shops outside of Japan began by opening in the United States and in Malaysia. The first shop in Taiwan opened in August of 2020, and this shop, 2nd STREET Taipei Station, will be the tenth.
2nd STREET Taipei Station will open in the area around Taipei Station, Taipei’s principal railway station. Taipei Station is where travelers catch trains and bullet trains, and board the MRT subway system, with the bus terminal from which passengers depart to Taoyuan Airport or the different regions of Taiwan, making it an extremely convenient station. The surrounding area offers a wide variety of attractions, including department stores, tutoring schools, gourmet restaurants, and everyday shops. Not only do students and local residents come here for their day-to-day shopping needs, the area also attracts tourists from other areas. This shop will open on the first basement level of a commercial building at No. 12, Guanqian Road, Zhongzheng District, just five minutes on foot from the South Exit of Taipei Station.
2nd STREET Taipei Station will carry approximately 12,000 luxurious items for reuse, including clothing, handbags, shoes, and accessories, carefully selected from the abundant inventory purchased at approximately 700 2ND STREET shops within Japan. Those items will include selections from Japanese designer brands as well as internationally popular luxury brands. The array of items will include reasonably priced quality selections from designer brands and boutiques in the United States and Europe as well.
The shop will be laid out, as is the case for 2ND STREET shops in Japan, in ways that categorize the different items and genres, making it easier to find what you are looking for. It will also include venues to show off and sell recent fashion trends, including street styles.
The purchasing service will begin when the shop opens as a result of the short amount of time it took to develop the buyer training system in Taiwan.
2ND STREET TAIWAN has plans to open an additional seven shops by the end of March 2023.
