    Belge une fois

    Belge une fois

    The concept store that makes life more Belgian

    Grand-Place District


    Challenge


    Arthur and Natacha, typical of Brussels folk, love a challenge. Less that three months after the end of their pop-up experiment in rue Haute in summer 2015, they opened their own boutique a few doors down. Then, when they were offered an opportunity to obtain ground-floor premises a stone’s throw from Grand-Place barely a year later, it didn’t take them long to make up their minds.

         


    Mission


    Atrium.Brussels, in its capacity as Regional Agency for Commerce, also acts as intermediary between owners of commercial property and tenants seeking retail premises.
    The Agency had already partnered Belge une Fois to arrange its first opening, and it put the owner of 11 rue Brasseurs in touch with Natacha and Arthur. Atrium.Brussels then gave a sticker to the concept store for the duration of the works, before providing the young couple with logistical support for the store’s opening.


    Outcome


    Where once it was Les Marolles, now it’s the turn of Grand-Place to rhapsodise over the pins and other designer bits and pieces at Belge une Fois. The customers include a surprising number of local people. And not without reason: the concept store has made the names of personalities such as Dikkenek and Freddy Tougaux, so beloved by the people of Brussels, go down in history. And its shelves reveal the joyfully impertinent creations of over 50 Belgian artists.
