Kylie Minogue has announced that she’s moving into retail, opening a shop in London. Although she’s already anticipating poor sales, so will be closing it down after just two days.

Right, yeah, it’s actually one of those pop-up shop things that the kids love so much. It’ll be opened to coincide with her upcoming festive Royal Albert Hall shows on 9-10 Dec. Fans will be able to queue up at the shop to buy merch, “stylish homewares” and Christmas decorations. There will also be costumes from previous Kylie shows on display.

“I’ve wanted to do a pop-up store for some time and when the Royal Albert Hall said they would like to host it for me I thought it would be a really fun addition to ‘A Kylie Christmas'”, says Minogue. “We’ve loved putting the range together and I hope the fans enjoy it”.

Lucy Noble, Director Of Events at the Royal Albert Hall adds: “We’re THRILLED that Kylie is creating her first ever pop-up shop to celebrate her performances here, giving fans the chance to get hold of exclusive Kylie merchandise. We have an unrivalled history of events, and have hosted Winston Churchill, Albert Einstein and The Beatles, but this is the first time we’ve ever hosted a pop-up shop!”

I can’t believe Winston Churchill never had a pop-up shop. What a missed opportunity. Ah well, if you want to have a look at this shop, you’ll find it at Door 6 of the Royal Albert Hall on 9-10 Dec. No ticket for the shows is required to spend money in there.
