Allan Nielsen

Allan Nielsen edges up the Top 100 this year after Danish retail group Bestseller had a record year in the UK. Bestseller would not disclose figures, but said the UK has had the highest sales growth across all Bestseller markets globally this year.

The business launched in the UK in 2003 and, since then, Nielsen has grown its stockist base to around 120 independents and 20 multiples – Jack & Jones is its biggest wholesale brand.

The group also has 32 stores here, and has recently embarked on a programme of closing some of the smaller Jack & Jones and Vero Moda multi-brand units and opening larger Jack & Jones concept stores in Manchester’s Arndale, Westfield London, Meadowhall in Sheffield, and in Cardiff.
