Polaroid Fotobar Announces Opening of Union Station Pop-Up Store

Posted: Jun 19, 2013

Stars & Stripes Photo Contest for $250 in-store gift certificate

June 19th, 2013 (Boca Raton, FL) – Following the successful opening in March of its first location in Delray Beach, Florida, Polaroid Fotobar is pleased to announce that it will be opening its second location, a “pop-up” store in Washington D.C.’s Union Station, on July 1, 2013. 

Polaroid Fotobar is a one-of-a-kind, fun and experiential, new retail concept that invites customers to turn their favorite photos into an extensive selection of custom and unique photo products. Customers can choose to instantly print their picture in the format of the Polaroid Classic Border Logo in five different sizes or select from a variety of materials to print their photo including canvas, metal, bamboo and more, which all ship within 3 days.

“We are delighted to be opening our second location in the nation’s capital,” says Warren Struhl, Founder and CEO of this innovative store concept. “Not only does D.C. have an incredible energy, but people take some of their most memorable photos in Washington at many of our country’s greatest landmarks. The opening of this pop-up location will allow people to liberate those unforgettable moments and photos from their cameras and smartphones, and create something special and physical to be displayed on their wall, desk or shelf.”

Polaroid Fotobar has reached out and invited some of D.C.’s most influential Instagram users to the pop-up store to experience first-hand the excitement of liberating their photos.

To celebrate the opening of this new location, Polaroid Fotobar is inviting people to enter its Union Station Stars & Stripes Photo Contest by sending their best photo to union@myfotobar.com for a chance to win a $250 in-store gift certificate.
