Frequently Asked Questions
When can I start visiting the PLAY LINE FRIENDS pop-up?
The PLAY LINE FRIENDS Vancouver pop-up will officially open its doors on June 30, 2022 at 9AM PDT, and it’s set to run until September 2022.
Are there going to be any special events or promotions for the Grand Opening?
The first 300 customers on the Grand Opening day will receive a random BT21 gel pen or pencil, while supplies last. We will be implementing a wristband system to ensure that the giveaway process is as smooth as possible.
We’ll also be giving away some BT21 products to customers who spend over a certain amount (while supplies last–take a look at this post for more information).
Customers can start lining up for the Grand Opening as early as 11PM PDT on June 29, 2022.
Where is the PLAY LINE FRIENDS pop-up located?
The PLAY LINE FRIENDS pop-up will be taking over the space formerly occupied by the Disney Store, across from MUJI, inside of the Metropolis at Metrotown shopping centre in Burnaby, BC.

What kind of items will the pop-up be carrying?
This pop-up will primarily focus on brand new and recent LINE FRIENDS and BT21 collections. Find everything from plushies, to bags, to home decor, to T-shirts, and more–all featuring your favourite characters.
Will you be restocking items that are sold-out?
Due to high demand, products tend to run out quickly. We recommend shopping early so you don't miss out on the items that you're interested in. We will have limited stock for each product carried at the pop-up, and once an item is sold-out, it’s likely gone for good. New products will be brought in every week, so stay tuned.
Will there be long lines at the pop-up?
Customers can begin lining up for the Grand Opening at 11PM PDT on June 29, 2022.
We anticipate that there will be a long line all throughout the Grand Opening day, and we recommend swinging by as early in the day as possible to secure your spot in line and avoid disappointment.
Although we’ll try our best to accommodate everyone who wants to visit the pop-up, to streamline the line-up and shopping process in accordance with the mall’s hours, we may implement procedures throughout the duration of the pop-up to ensure that visitors have enough time to shop. This may include cutting off the line early.
What interactive experiences can we expect at the pop-up?
To make this pop-up even more immersive for fans, we will be implementing photo-op areas, claw machines and more to add a fun and interactive element to the whole experience! Stop by to see what prizes are available to win, and test your luck. New experiences will be added throughout the lifetime of the pop-up.
Will there be any COVID-19 safety measures?
The pop-up store will be operating in accordance with local regulations and mask mandates. We kindly ask that customers remain mindful of others and adhere to social distancing guidelines for a safe shopping experience!
Will all of the products at the pop-up also be available on SUKOSHIMART.COM?
The in-store pop-up will have the widest range of LINE FRIENDS and BT21 products. Select products will also be available on SUKOSHIMART.COM at a later date.
