Arcadia plots 150 international franchise stores

Arcadia will open more than 150 new franchise stores over the next year as the group ramps its international expansion plans.

The group has committed to launching stores around the world for its chains including Topshop, Topman, Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge and Burton, according to The Sunday Telegraph.

Australia, Vietnam and Canada are top of the agenda and Topshop is also plotting its first standalone store in New Zealand next year.

Last month Topshop revealed it would extend its presence in US department store chain Nordstrom. The womenswear chain originally opened 14 departments in September last year.

This next stage will see a further 28 stores added, taking the total number of Topshop departments to 42 and expanding to US cities including San Diego, Houston and Washington DC.

The expansion comes after Arcadia owner Sir Philip Green sold a 25% stake in Topshop and Topman last year to US private equity firm Leonard Green & Partners.
