Ocean Minded Opens First Store in Asia

Ocean Minded is pleased to announce the opening of its Vivo City, Singapore store. The 420 square foot store opened on December 19, 2008 and contains over 600 pairs of the company’s eco-conscious footwear.

“This is our second store opening, with the first being in Amsterdam, in 2008. There is potential for a small number of high profile locations around the globe that will serve to rapidly enhance the public’s awareness of the Ocean Minded brand,” said the company’s General Manager, Andy Palmer.

Vivo City is Singapore’s largest retail and lifestyle destination, which has led to immediate foot traffic and sales at the brand’s new store. The next Ocean Minded retail location will be opening in Manila, Philippines sometime in early February 2009.

“The opening of our first Pacific Rim Ocean Minded store in Singapore represents an exciting step forward in the strategic development of our global ‘Ocean Lifestyle’ brand,” concluded Palmer.

Be Ocean Minded

That simple idea is the foundation of our company. Being ‘ocean minded’ and living an ‘ocean lifestyle’ begins with the inspiration and allure that the world’s oceans and beaches offer each one of us. The Ocean Minded™ brand enables an individual to identify, visualize, and embrace their personal beach and water-oriented passions in the course of their daily adventure. Whether you’re devoted to surfing in Hawaii, kayaking on the Sea of Cortez, snorkeling over the Great Barrier Reef, or warming up around a campfire in Big Sur, Ocean Minded welcomes you with open arms.

Live. Protect. Respect.

We can no longer deny that our planet is rapidly becoming a crowded and polluted place. Our chosen lifestyle, and the passion for the ocean we all share, cannot be taken for granted. Ocean Minded believes we should utilize recycled and sustainable materials in our products and collateral material whenever possible, and we consistently strive to achieve this. Additionally, we feel that as both a corporation, and a group of individuals, it is essential to Live, Protect, and Respect our environment. Since 1996, we have been organizing community beach clean-ups around the world, and educating our customers on the importance of leaving their chosen playgrounds in better condition than when they were found. Our belief that everything eventually ends up in the ocean has led us to host additional clean-ups in the mountains, as well as on the banks of inland rivers and lakes.
