The special limited-run shop, presented by Sony Music’s The Thread Shop and Apple Corps, Ltd., closes on December 22 so get your holiday shopping in while you can.
You know a band is truly timeless when you’re delighted to hear about a new licensing agreement for their merchandise 40 years after they broke up. The new line of products includes gifts for the casual listener as well as gifts for the die-hard fan, ranging from sweaters and beanies, to turntables and pinball machines, and so much more.
You can buy all of this online at the online store, but the physical shop is worth the visit. The Fab Four’s Yellow Submarine cartoon faces look down at you approvingly as you enter 163 Mercer. Turn the corner in the entryway and you’re at the intersection of several key Beatles eras. There’s even an Ed Sullivan inspired stage complete with a drum set.
They’ve thought of everything here. There’s a 60s mod lounge to put up your heels, a gift wrap station to package your wares, and an authentic UK phone booth. You know, for the ‘gram.
