Author: Alex  |  Category: Retail

There is a new type of business concept in Sweden and its called ACNE. ACNE stands for “Ambition to Create Novel Expressions”. This Swedish label is a multi-disciplinary company consisting of clothings, films, furniture design, architecture and their own world-class publication. 

Their stores are designed in a very attractive manner somewhat recreating an artist’s studio. Everything in the acne store including the lights, tables, cabinets and racks were designed and made in Sweden and can be purchased by interested customers.

This is what I call maximizing opportunities to sell.

Another business that targets only women customers between 18-30 years old who’d like a change from sweet mixed drinks. 

A Dutch wine for women Sophie & Sophie is rosé wine “refresher” sold in small bottles. A wine ‘refresher’ is made from a combination of wine, dealcoholized wine, and freshly pressed grape juice, which leaves a drink that tastes like semi-dry wine, but only contains 5.5% alcohol, and half the amount of calories in real wine.

The wine is sold in stylish little bottles, containing enough ‘wine’ for two glasses. Just enough to give the drinker a good feeling without the risk of getting too drunk. Time to introduce this in the wine of the month club.
