Turkish casualwear retailer Colin’s aims to make a splash in the UK with ambitious plans to open more than 100 shops here in the next decade.
The retailer, which has 600 stores in Europe and the Middle East, is targeting 650 in 32 countries by the end of this year. It sells casualwear for men and women aged between 18 and 35. Prices range from £9.99 for a printed T-shirt to £120 for quilted winter jackets.
Colin’s managing director Necati Ozdogan said the retailer would go up against retailers such as Jack & Jones, Republic and Cult.
Colin’s, which expects to notch up total turnover of US$520m (£318m) by the end of this year, is in talks with landlords including Capital Shopping Centres about opening UK stores, especially in cities.
