Exclusive: JanSport to stop European operations

Spring 13 will be the last season in Europe for accessories brand JanSport, which will discontinue its operations in the region next year

Country manager Nathan Hill sent a letter to stockists stating that parent company VF International would stop distributing the brand in Europe from the beginning of 2013.

The letter, seen by Drapers, said VF Corporation had decided to focus its efforts on Eastpak within Europe. JanSport will remain a priority within its domestic US market.

Hill added: “We are committed to servicing you [the stockist] throughout the remainder of this year and early 2013 through fulfilling the spring 13 order books and any replenishment needs you may have.”

All current procedures for warranty, payments and placing orders will remain unchanged.

JanSport has a number of UK stockists including John Lewis, Asos and lifestyle etailer Surfdome.com.
