The two existing Pokemon Centers, located in Tokyo and Japan, are merchandicing centers which exclusively sell Pokemon merchandise. Over 1600 different Pokemon items are currently available.
The 10 additional stores, including ones in New York and London, are expected to be nearly identical to the original two.
