The Yard is a concept store based in Kuwait, with a purpose to introduce innovative, unusual and designed products and highlight them as functional everyday products that still feel quite special. The Yard’s products range from homeware to bags, travel accessories, jewellery, magazines, books, stationery, cards, party supplies, and clothing.
As of early 2011, The Yard collaborated with 'Q', a restaurant in the heart of Kuwait City. The space, branded as ‘Q at The Yard’, translates The Yard's online store into a tangible shopping experience. Managed and run by the same owners, Q at The Yard presents a multi-dimensional space that creatively integrates design, food and retail to present visitors with an overall “Eat.Drink.Shop” experience.
In summer of 2016, The Yard curated a special store 'The Reading Room' at AlShaheed Park. The Reading Room is both a concept store and community space catering to a wider range of visitors. The store's product mix expands to include toiletries, organic cosmetics and children's reading books. Sleek white marble flooring and large, floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the park and an internal courtyard, The Reading Room is the perfect venue to showcase a wider range of eccelectics and provide that ideal cosy corner for an afternoon read.
Apart from scouting and featuring innovative products by young local designers, The Yard works with international designers to customize items, specifically for the shop. The variety and selection of The Yard’s product lines is what sets it apart from other retail stores in the region.
Q at The Yard is located in Sharq, Jaber Al Mubarak Street, Al Shurooq Tower, opposite Dasman Complex. Opening hours are 7 days a week, 7AM – 11PM on weekdays and from 8AM – 11PM on weekends.
The Reading Room is located at The Visitor Center in AlShaheed Park, AlSoor Street, Sharq. Opening hours Tuesdays through Sundays 10AM-10PM (closed Mondays) and Fridays from 1-10PM.
