Store search! The latest info for January 2014

We never let on, but that awning was always supposed to be temporary!
It's been a while since our last update on Tokyo Rebel Gen2, and we know from your emails and Facebook comments that some of you are wondering when a new store's going to happen. We thought it was time to provide whatever new info we can. Long story short, there's still not much to tell yet, but believe it or not stuff is actually happening behind the scenes. A real estate search is not a fast moving process, as anyone who's bought a house or even searched for an apartment in New York will tell you!

In the past week alone, we've looked at five potential locations. That's a typical week, and has been for quite a while. You might wonder what's taking so long - surely one of these locations would work, right? After all, people open stores all the time. Heck, we did it once ourselves, and with a lot less product to sell than we have now.

But consider the facts that most new stores end up closed and that these locations are all empty for a reason. They're empty because the store that used to be there left, either by choice or because they went under. Like our last store (which is now a motorcycle speed shop!), all of these locations so far have had unique problems that would require the web site to subsidize the physical store. The trick is to find that one place in a good location with reasonable terms that the previous tenant just moved on from, hopefully because they outgrew it. That's what we're looking for.

There are also things being talked about between us and others that we can't, well, talk about yet. These things may or may not eventually happen, but the point is that plans are being made and ideas tossed around, and we want you to know that we're not just sitting back and relaxing. (We're not on vacation whenever we pause our shipping to head for Japan!) We're working hard on this whole process; but it is taking a little longer than we wanted.

And hey, if you know of any good spaces you think might work for us, let us know. We've seen pretty much all the advertised spaces, but many spaces never make it to the internet and we've no doubt missed some. If you're in the Manhattan/Brooklyn area and spot a free space that you could see us in, give us a shout.

Hopefully we will have more concrete info to share with you soon. We want to open a new store just as much as you want us to!

In the meantime, please keep ordering from our web site!

Photo gallery update! New photos posted!


Hey y'all - it's been a while since we've worked on our photo gallery, but we just uploaded a couple of new albums with photos we've had since last year, many of which you definitely haven't seen before! Go behind the scenes of our video shoot last year with GLB/KERA models Misako and Midori, and check out Baby, the Stars Shine Bright's flagship store in Harajuku! We've also finally posted our photos from the Aldious show last November to the gallery.

If you're new to our store and haven't really dived too deep into our site yet, check out our other albums too - we've got a ton of photos from past events we've either held or attended, our old East Village store, as well as our brands' stores in Japan. We'll hopefully be posting more photos soon - we've got a lot of great stuff saved that's never gone up there. We'll let you know when we post more!

Introducing our new rewards program!


It's one of our most-requested features, and now it's finally here - a real points program for our web site customers! Take 30% off any web site order once you reach 1,000 points! Save big!

How does it work?
  • Create a Tokyo Rebel account - you'll be automatically enrolled and get 100 bonus points for signing up!
  • Log in to make your purchases - on any order over $50, $1 equals 1 point. Simple!
  • After you hit 1,000 points, you'll receive a coupon code for 30% off your next order!
  • Reward redemptions must be made for in-stock items on our web site.
  • Points will accumulate going forward - we can't apply them to past orders.
We're enabling point accumulation for email/PayPal reserve orders too! Just make sure you sign up for an account first.

Our longtime store customers may recognize this as being very similar to our in-store points program when we were in our East Village location, which was very popular. We're finally bringing that program online.

You might have noticed that accounts are new on our site too. Signing up for an account gives you several additional benefits:
  • Full web site order history, including past orders! (Be sure to sign up with the same email if you've ordered before.)
  • Current order status, if applicable.
