CBRE Global Investors' Angel Central Welcomes Know the Origin First Zero-Waste Pop-up

LONDON, 21 July 2021 – CBRE Global Investors has today announced that sustainability-focused department store, Know the Origin, has opened its latest pop-up and first zero-waste store at community-led retail and leisure destination, Angel Central.

Bringing together a line-up of next-generation ethical brands, and setting the new standard of sustainability, Know the Origin has opened its pop-up store at 11 Parkfield Street. Spanning 2,831 sq ft the new temporary store showcases over 200 brands including Girlfriend Collective, Thinking Mu, and Hara The Label.

Ranked as the Ethical Consumers’ number one brand, Know the Origin’s idea is simple: to create a platform with robust sustainable standards and combine radically transparent brands, showing everyone every step of how their products are grown and sewn.

Know the Origin works with over 190 small brands and social enterprises in one zero-waste store, hosting fortnightly events on sustainability issues and workshops on zero-waste living. The brand has experience running eight pop-ups across Brighton, London and Manchester, spreading its vision to make ‘knowing the origin’ the industry standard.

Commenting on the opening, Ciara Daffy, Asset Manager at CBRE Global Investors, said: “Enhancing sustainability in retail is now one of the most talked about objectives in the industry, and Know the Origin is one of those retailers at the forefront when it comes to changing the way we consume our goods. Know the Origin is a thought-provoking concept, which makes sustainable retail highly accessible to the public, and its educational and collaborative approach makes for a great addition to Angel Central.”

Charlotte Instone, Founder of Know the Origin, commented: “I set up Know the Origin to create a platform for those amazing brands that champion the full product journey, so customers can connect with where each product has come from. We have been able to educate the public and spread our vision across the UK through our series of pop-up stores, and Angel Central’s prominent location and high levels of footfall is the perfect space to continue our mission.””

The opening follows the recent completion of Angel Central’s £16m shopping centre refurbishment. The works, designed by international architects Haskoll, have been delivered by RED Construction and development managers Queensberry.

CBRE and CWM represent Angel Central for both retail and leisure enquiries.
