Høsten in Danish means “harvest”, and for Christensen & Huarte celebrating the visit of the client #100.000 in their store in Fuencarral street was a very special moment.
In less than two years, Høsten – by Christensen & Huarte, has realized that consumption habits have changed in Spain and smart shopping is the new trend. This concept is a new way of shopping, in which buying is more balanced than in other times. People still need little presents to give or just for decorating their homes. However, they do that with more criteria and thinking through the price. Hosten’s clients do not want sales because they prefer to have the best prize throughout all the year.
The success of Høsten by Christensen & Huarte, a Danish style shop which opened the doors in November 2012 in Calle Goya and then expanded to Fuencarral, shows that, in a tough context, people are still looking for original gifts and a different style in the tiny things used at home. Nowadays, clients call on a quality-price relation much more exigent than ever.
