Oct 13 2023 Share

Netflix, once known for mailing DVDs, is now venturing into brick-and-mortar retail with “Netflix House” stores. 

These locations will sell merchandise from popular Netflix shows, offering fans a chance to get items like themed coffee mugs. In addition to shopping, Netflix House will provide dining experiences and curated live events.

The inaugural stores will feature an obstacle course inspired by the hit series “Squid Game,” even though this may diverge from the show’s original satirical intent.

The stores will feature rotating art installations based on beloved shows, and serve cuisine and drinks featured in the streamer’s unscripted food reality programs, ranging from casual to high-end dining. 

The first two US locations are slated to open in 2025, with plans for more global outlets later on. Netflix aims to elevate customer immersion in the worlds of its movies and shows.

While Netflix has previously experimented with pop-up experiences for specific shows, Netflix House will encompass the entirety of its content library. Details regarding menus, locations, and other specifics are still being finalized for the venture, which is set to launch in over a year.

These guidelines identify sectors in which the government, individuals, businesses, and organizations are encouraged to take daily steps to address disparities leading to unequal treatment between genders.

Parliamentary Secretary Buttigieg emphasized that these guidelines focus on ensuring participation and visibility for all genders in meetings, events, relationships, publications, advertising, and public procurement. She added that the guidelines also call for greater sensitivity to gender in spoken and written language.

“The choice of these sectors was made after careful consideration because all of these impact society’s perspective and dimension of equality,” concluded Parliamentary Secretary Buttigieg.

Meanwhile, the Head of Public Service Tony Sultana expressed satisfaction that the immediate guidelines were issued following extensive consultation with various entities including the National Statistics Office (NSO), the National Commission for the Promotion of Equality (NCPE), and the Advisory Council for Women’s Rights, along with his office. He noted that diversity and different cultures in workplaces have led to significant results.

“This is a Public Administration that we are working towards. A barrier-free Public Administration where everyone works synergistically. Commitments outlined in these guidelines are not just on paper, but we continue to implement them in our daily practices,” stated Mr. Sultana.
