The more cynical might suggest London’s biggest pop-up shop is only so big because London 2012 has failed to shift as much merchandise as it had hoped.
This just-open-for-the-Games store flung wide its temporary doors last week, with Sir Steve Redgrave cutting the ribbon.
If you fancy bagging a piece of Olympics memorabilia to look back on in years to come, this is officially the place to go.
However, it might set you back a pretty penny – a London 2012 cushion is £85 and a water bottle is £12.
Although, you can find a few bargains if you search hard enough – a vintage art print of the London 1948 Games is £10, and a duvet and pillow set (if you’re that keen on the Games that you want to wake up next to the logo) is £30.
These items might be worth money one day. Or not. Also head down to meet athletes and compete in sports-related competitions.
