USA: Brooks Brothers To Enter UK Market
US men's clothing chain Brooks Brothers is launching onto the UK market with the opening of its first outlet in London.
Brooks, which has also made an offer for a second site in the capital, aims to have 12 UK retail locations within the coming five years, business magazine Retail Week reported.
The company, formerly owned by British retailer Marks & Spencer, was acquired by Claudio Del Vecchio's Retail Brand Alliance in 2001 and has since been concentrating on overseas growth.
The first store to be opened in the UK will be located in Old Broad Street and will stock suits, shirts, ties and accessories, as well as offering a made-to-measure service. Brooks aims to open the store by early November.
