One Direction World. Sounds like a myth or perhaps a ridiculously good-looking theme park, doesn’t it? But those 1D fans in the know would be able to tell you that One Direction World does in fact exist, in cities such as New York, Sydney, Barcelona, Stockholm – and now Glasgow. Yes, Scotland’s own 1D World pop-up shop opened its doors in Silverburn shopping centre on Saturday morning, taking over a 2270sqft unit purely for One Direction merchandise. That’s a whole lotta Harry Styles right there.
Running until 4th August, 1D World Glasgow offers fans the chance to purchase everything from T-shirts to posters, calendars to cardboard cutouts. There will also be exclusive competitions and offers running throughout the fortnight and Directioners can even have their photo taken against the One Direction picture boards.
With thousands of fans flocking to 1D World on opening day, don’t be surprised if Glasgow city centre seems a little emptier than usual for the next two weeks, and your best friend keeps mysteriously missing all your phone calls. That ‘ironic’ What Makes You Beautiful ringtone? She’s in the 1D fan closet. You’ll find her in the back fighting over the last Zayn cutout.
