Clarks will open its fourth shop in Istanbul next month as part of an expansion plan to roll out 25 stores in Turkey over the next four years.
The 1,600 sq ft outlet is located in the Capacity Shopping Mall in the city’s Bakırköy business district. It is the footwear retailer’s fifth store in Turkey, with one in the capital Ankara and four in Istanbul.
The centre spans five floors of retail and welcomes 18 million visitors each year. Other international fashion retailers based in Capacity include Banana Republic, Hugo Boss, Lacoste, Levi’s, Mango, Marks & Spencer and Tommy Hilfiger.
Cushman & Wakefield was appointed for the Turkish expansion.
Toğrul Gönden, managing partner of Cushman & Wakefield in Turkey, said: “Since opening in 2007, Capacity Shopping Mall has become one of the most visited retail destinations not just in Istanbul but in the whole of Turkey. We will continue to work with Clarks on implementing its ambitious Turkish growth strategy by finding the best properties in the most suitable locations.”
