The Independent Online
Four Space NK Apothecaries have sprung up in key locations across London during the past six months. They are the brainchild of Nicky Kinnaird (the initials behind the shop), and have come about as a result of the overwhelming demand for (mainly American) branded niche cosmetics. The first Space NK shop in Covent Garden, which sold clothing and accessories, has recently closed to make way for more apothecaries. The stores are carefully positioned in different areas of London and marketed to that area. This Top 10 is a cross section of all four shops.
