Aeropostale is to open stores in Thailand and Egypt

US casual apparel retailer Aeropostale has signed two licensing deals that will see it expand in the Asia and the EMEA region, opening stores in Thailand and Egypt over the next five years. 

Through its deal with Robinson Department Store Public Company, Aeropostale plans to open 40 standalone and shop-in-shop locations in Thailand. The first will open in the Robinson Department Store in Sriracha.

In Egypt, Aeropostale has signed a licensing agreement with Q and A Retail Company to open 40 standalone stores over the next five years.

Aeropostale's expansion plans in both locations are due to begin in early 2016. 

“Aeropostale's international expansion began in Asia and the Middle East and it is with great pleasure that we announce further expansion across these key regions,” said CEO Julian Geiger. “Thailand and Egypt will be important markets as we continue to expand globally across Asia, the Middle East and Africa. We are confident that our partnerships with Robinson Department Store and Q and A Retail Company will ensure that the Aeropostale brand will continue to thrive and prosper internationally.”
