New stores to open in a raft of locations before Christmas
New Look Men at the Trafford Centre
New Look Men is set to open new stores in locations including Shrewsbury, Exeter, Maidstone, Derby and Nottingham before the end of the year, Drapers can exclusively reveal.
New Look opened its first standalone menswear stores in Portsmouth and Wigan in September 2015.
The retailer will open in Shrewsbury at the end of this month and in Exeter on 9 November, followed by Maidstone on 11 November and Derby on 16 November.
As previously reported by Drapers, it is upsizing its store at Intu Trafford Centre by 1,100 sq ft to a 2,700 sq ft store, which will open at the same time as its new womenswear store at the centre, which is increasing from 4,000 sq ft to 16,000 sq ft.
New Look Men will round off its store opening programme ahead of the festive season with the Nottingham store, which will open on 25 November.
The firm is also aiming to open 20 more stores in the UK and internationally each year over the next five years.
