The King's Shop has been rebranded and moved to Bush House Arcade on 18 September, 2017! We changed our name to The Union Shop and now offer even more products to our student community. Not only do we have an extended range of King's branded items here, but we also have access to grab and go food, an international range of dry foods, and all the stationery to meet our needs.

What to expect at The Union Shop in Bush House
The Union Shop occupies a much bigger space with a wider range of products and a changing room. In addition to our current offers, we’ll be expanding our clothing range to include sportswear, children’s clothing, and even more King’s branded items.
We’re offering more stationery items so this will be our one stop shop for school supplies.
We’re also moving into foods! There’ll be an international specialty foods section in the Union Shop offering a range of dry food items that reflect the needs of our very diverse student body, as well as a chiller with bottled water and refreshment for those on the go. (See The Shack and The Vault for other food options)
Why did we change our name to The Union Shop?
We decided to rename the shop to better reflect the fact that this a student operated facility and everything we earn goes back into providing services for all of us. The shop is staffed by students and caters to students needs. We will still be the only source of King's branded items. Below are elements of our new brand identity.
