Topshop is to extend its presence in US department store chain Nordstrom as it more than doubles its concessions in the retailer.
The womenswear chain originally opened 14 departments in September last year, however a further 28 stores will be added, taking the total number of Topshop departments to 42. Menswear retailer Topman’s presence will also be increased with a further eight concessions added, taking its total to 18 in the retailer.
The US department store chain is also planning a “completely refreshed design” for all its new and existing Topshop and Topman departments.
Nordstrom president of merchandising Pete Nordstrom said: “Through this collaboration, we hoped to attract new customers to both our women’s and men’s apparel businesses and to learn to create newness and excitement in our stores and online. We have been able to measurably improve on these fronts.”
Arcadia owner Sir Philip Green said: “The first nine months have been a steep learning curve for us all, and it has been great to work with Pete [Nordstrom] and his team on providing the Nordstrom customers with the very best of what we deliver as great British fashion brands.
“I always believed that Nordstrom’s multichannel presence was the decisive factor in partnering with them in the USA, and we are looking forward to the further expansion across so many great cities, and refining our presence within their stores and online. Hopefully there will be even more to come.”
