One of the places I visited recently was Vienna, Austria. And of course, I had to check if there were any cute places or Hello Kitty stores around. I found online that they have a Sanrio Surprise store in Vienna. It’s located at the Lugner City Store (mall) in Gablenzgasse street – about 15 minutes away from the city center.
The Sanrio Surprise store is situated at the 3rd floor of the mall. The shopping center is not big, so you can easily find the shop once you’re at the escalator. The exterior decoration of the shop has Hello Kitty’s head outlined in red and a cute pink bow. Inside there are so many cute Sanrio merchandises – plush dolls, luggage bags, notebooks, and more. As always, I asked the staff if it was alight to take photos inside the store, and she said its OK. The shop staff was very helpful and friendly. She showed me the latest items and informed me about their special sale.
Sanrio Surprise Vienna:
The day I visited, Sanrio had a 25% off on all items and I couldn’t resist so I bought a ‘geeky’ Hello Kitty designed book bag. I asked the staff if they had any special items – like Hello Kitty ‘Austria-theme’ but unfortunately they did not. However, they had a Hello Kitty ‘Germany’ plush doll.
I’m glad to be able to visit another Sanrio store in a different country. It’s always a good feeling to see cute places and things around the world.
