Pokémon Center London forced to close earlier and impose purchase limits due to “unprecedented demand”

A Pokémon Center pop-up store recently opened in Westfield London, Shepherd’s Bush. The Pokémon Center pop-up store, which celebrates the upcoming release of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield for Nintendo Switch, is the first of its kind in the United Kingdom and offers plenty of Pokémon merchandise for fans of all ages. However, due to “unprecedented demand,” Pokémon Center London is now closing earlier and imposing purchase limits.

This week, it has reduced shop opening hours from 10am-10pm to 10am-6pm (Sunday 12pm-6pm), and further tightened its limits on purchases. “We receive daily deliveries and endeavour to replenish stock as quickly as possible. However, due to unprecedented demand, some products may sell out before the end of the day,” the shop now says. “Our team are working hard to restock daily. However, as interest in the store has been unprecedented, some products may sell out before the shop’s closure on Friday 15th November. Customers wishing to queue overnight may have to wait outside,” Westfield has said. “You will not be permitted to bring camping bags or tents. Please make yourself known to a member of the security team upon your arrival.”
