British footwear brand Dr Martens is to open a new store on London’s Carnaby Street on November 21.
The two-floor store will reflect the brand’s heritage and forms part of Dr Martens retail store opening programme that has seen stores recently opened in both Glasgow and Manchester.
The store will feature exposed wooden floors and brick walls as well as leather sofas.
There will also be a special Made in England zone to showcase product that is made in Dr Martens’ original Northamptonshire factory.
A bespoke event to celebrate the opening of the store is currently being planned.
The brand has recently partnered with music charity Strummerville, the Joe Strummer Foundation for new music, and Dr Martens will be inviting some of the artists from Strummerville to play at the opening event.
In February of this year the Dr Martens brand was put up for sale by its owner R Griggs Group.
However, despite speculation that several investors, including a Russian billionaire, were circling the brand R Griggs ended sale talks in July saying that offers failed to reflect a fair value for the brand.
