After opening our first store in Ghent eight years ago, we made the switch to the Scheldt city in 2020. We took our
moved into a fantastic location on the Graanmarkt. “The desire to open a store in Antwerp arose two years ago,” says manager Christophe Verbeke. “When I saw the building on De Graanmarkt, it was love at first sight. Like all our stores, this one has its own atmosphere.
In our first store you will mainly find gadgets, nice gifts and interior accessories, while the second Ghent branch is a bit more streamlined and focuses more on lifestyle. In Antwerp we offer a total concept, with larger items and interior pieces - even projects are possible - and a restaurant."
PIET Grandeux is the new store of Christophe Verbeke. Why a new Moodshop?
In the years that we have been working, we came to the conclusion that 1 store had become too small for all our ideas. That is why we now have a Homestore and a Workstore in which we can elaborate each concept in more detail. Although our ambitions remain the same in both stores: to feed your happiness with fun, surprising and stylish items.
Where do you get inspiration for your collection?
A question I get very often! Every year I go to various design and interior fairs both in Belgium and abroad, where I can admire the collections of the many brands. But I get just as much inspiration from city trips where I look for the nice design shops. And of course: the internet, blogs and instagram. I often come across things that I find beautiful and that fit Piet Moodshop.
I also get help from my Moodshop Buyers Club. These are a number of people who know my vision and shop very well, with whom I evaluate the collection 4 times a year. I present them with new ideas and products and only when everyone agrees is the range supplemented. This helps me to avoid bad buys and ensures that I have guaranteed successful items in my store.
Our PIET Moodshop in Antwerp is located in a monumental building on the Graanmarkt, one of the most beautiful squares in the city. The concept store is 650 m² in size: plenty of space for furniture, interior accessories and office stationary. The result is an interior mecca with a unique mix of large and small brands. Great to browse, get inspired and to shop your dream interior together.
In addition to interior items to enjoy, you will also find an apero bar and resto in the new experience shop to satisfy your real hunger. We entered into a collaboration with catering partner Grandeux, a fingerlicking good foodsharing concept. The entire interior of Grandeux is made by PIET Moodshops: you can therefore buy all furniture, napkins, glasses, crockery, ... immediately in the store.
But make no mistake: we are not building a typical retail chain with identical stores. PIET Moodshop in Antwerp is a new story, an original shop concept tailored to the Sinjoren city.
