Topshop confirms US roll out
Sir Philip Green, the owner of Topshop, has confirmed he plans to open a second store in New York after the debut Manhattan store achieved strong sales in its first two months of trading.
Sir Philip Green told the Sunday Express newspaper: “It’s [the store] is doing very well, New Yorkers like it. The sales mix is not wildly different to our stores in the UK.”
Green added that he was close to finalising a second store location and that work on the site would begin within the next three months. However he did not reveal a planned opening date.
Green has plans to open up to 15 Topshop stores across the US.
The first Topshop store in the US opened on April 2 at Broadway in Soho. It is 25,000sq ft and split over four floors. It also features a Topman store.
The store was opened by Sir Philip Green and Kate Moss and the launch attracted large crowds after a blaze of publicity.
