Mango signs up for two new UK stores
Mango has signed up for space in two leading UK shopping centres as part of plans to open 65,000 sq ft of new selling space worldwide this year.
The Spanish fast-fashion retailer will open in Intu Watford’s multi-million-pound extension, where it will join a host of other national and international brands including Jack Wills and Superdry.
It has also taken a unit at Intu Merry Hill, which will be the only Mango in the West Midlands outside of Birmingham once it opens to the public. The shopping mall has attracted some 20 new retailers in the last year, including luxury retailer Flannels and footwear firm Footlockers.
Julian Wilkinson, asset management director at Intu, commented: “These two new Mango stores are an example of a premium international retailer choosing to invest in the very best British locations, where brands can really flourish.
“Mango’s new store at intu Watford will add to an already impressive line-up of new and existing brand names and will offer our customers the best choices in retail and leisure, further strengthening intu Watford’s position as a true destination.
“By investing in a new store at intu Merry Hill, Mango are taking advantage of the unique opportunity offered at the 1,400,000 sq ft centre and are creating a large store in a prime retail location.”
This year, the trend-led clothing brand is focusing on opening larger-format stores and closing smaller units to present its retail concept. Mango sells online in over 80 countries, and has stores in over 109 countries.
