Jack & Jones to open five new UK stores

Menswear brand and retailer Jack & Jones is looking to open five new stores by the end of the year in the Northwest, Northeast and the Midlands.

The label, part of Danish brand house Bestseller, launched in the UK in 2003 with a focus on wholesale and retail representation on the high street.

Bestseller’s UK country director Allan Nielsen said: “We are in a positive development and the growth is mainly with our existing long term partners.

“We are always looking for new store opportunities, but the rent deal needs to be fair and reflect what the current marketplace looks like in 2015.”

He said the company expects to open five new stores before Christmas, adding: “The recent restructure of stores was needed and part of our plan to allow us to open more new stores that are both the right size and right location to achieve the expected growth.

“We are negotiating on further locations, but the outcome depends on agreeing the right rent deals.”

The brand has approximately 120 independent stockists in the UK, 20 multiples and 15 key accounts. It has 32 stores in the UK, having closed 10 Jack & Jones and Vero Moda multi-brand stores in the last two years and opened larger Jack & Jones concept stores in Manchester’s Arndale centre, Westfield London, Meadowhall and Cardiff.
