Dancewear brand Pineapple relocates UK flagship store
Pineapple Dance Studio has moved its UK clothing store to a more prominent location at 8 Mercer Walk in Covent Garden.
Now located directly opposite the dance studio, the new 700-square-foot store features the brand’s clothing and dancewear collections for women and girls, including activewear, seasonal collections, accessories and footwear.
Founded by Debbie Moore in 1979, the clothing lines are also stocked in many independent dance retailers in the UK and abroad, including Ireland, France, Gibraltar, Germany, Finland, USA, Australia and New Zealand. Fashion e-tailers including Amazon, JD Williams, Littlewoods, Next and Very are also stockists.
Debbie Moore, owner and CEO of Pineapple Dance Studios, commented: “Our location means a great deal to me as it is embedded in the heritage of the Pineapple brand. Therefore, staying in this area was an obvious choice, especially since Covent Garden is the centre of dance in London, and has grown to be such a thriving retail destination over the last 40 years.”
Simon Taylor, property director at The Mercers’ Company, commented: “The brand’s heritage is rooted within the arts industry and continues to be is a significant footfall driver for the estate.”
