eBay opens streetwear pop-up shop in New York

Online auction house eBay has launched a pop-up retail store called Canal Street Wear in New York focusing on streetwear from top sellers.

The company said shoppers will be able to find classic clothes as well as latest releases which have been curated by eBay sellers including NYMilan, RIF and Soled Out Jersey City. All items will be verified by eBay’s Authenticity Guarantee.

Additionally, shoppers can also bring in streetwear items from their own closets to have them authenticated on-site by eBay’s team of streetwear experts.

eBay said the streetwear industry is worth around $180 billion and searchers for it have grown on the site by around 150 per cent since the start of the year. The amount of counterfeited goods on offer has risen, creating the need for authentication.

Canal Street Wear is located on Manhattan’s Canal Street, a hub for bootleg and counterfeit goods.

"Enthusiasts go to eBay to find every drop from the past few decades, from late 90's Supreme and Virgil era Louis Vuitton, to younger brands like Palace and Aimé Leon Dore," said Charis Marquez, global VP of fashion at eBay.

"Expanding Authenticity Guarantee to streetwear brings peace of mind that every item is the real deal and furthers our efforts to make eBay the most trusted destination for streetwear. Canal Street Wear highlights eBay's incredible selection and commitment to authenticity."
