A-Wear plans UK expansion

Irish womenswear chain A-Wear has kicked off big expansion plans in the UK with stores in Leicester and Bristol.

The retailer will open shops at Highcross shopping centre in Leicester and at Cabot Circus in Bristol next month. A store will also open before October in a location yet to be finalised.

A-Wear has 25 stores in the Republic of Ireland and two in Northern Ireland.

Commercial financial director Mark Naughton-Rumbo said the UK operation could be bigger than in the RoI, with 20 stores planned in the next two years.
“We sit between New Look and Topshop on price, but don’t target a teen customer,” he said.
