Premium womenswear brand Marc Cain has announced it is to open a standalone store in St Albans, Hertfordshire.
The 538 sq ft store, located on George Street, will be the brand’s first standalone retail store in the UK and opens on December 15.
It will be operated via a franchise model and will showcase all of the brand’s spring 13 collections.
“The historical old building coupled with the bright, modern Marc Cain design is extremely exciting and unique,” said franchisee Cathy Lewis.
The store is designed with a dark parquet floor and a champagne and metallic colour scheme. There is also a lounge area equipped with padded furniture for customers to use.
Marc Cain has 127 standalone stores and 243 concessions in 59 countries worldwide as well as 1460 wholesale stockists.
