September 5, 2018, New York, NY – Ralph Lauren Corp. announces today the opening of three new Polo Ralph
Lauren stores in the United Kingdom (UK), in Canary Wharf, Manchester and
Leeds, as part of its strategic priority to drive targeted expansion across
underdeveloped markets across its International region including in EMEA. The
physical store expansion complements Ralph Lauren's recent upgrade to its
digital flagship in Europe, which provides an improved user experience with
better functionality, faster check-out and customization.
The first of the UK store openings will be
on 8 Sept., located in Canary Wharf's bustling Cabot Place and will deliver a
tailored product offering to a targeted consumer, with Polo Ralph Lauren
menswear suiting and sportswear available; alongside an extensive list of
in-store services including a complimentary personal styling service.
Further UK store openings will follow
later in the month on Manchester's New Cathedral Street and at Leeds Victoria
Quarter in Oct. Both stores will be dual gender and represent the classic yet
spirited American style for which Polo Ralph Lauren is recognized throughout
the world. Design influences fuse elements of collegiate sports and the great
outdoors combined with rustic oak flooring, vintage-inspired display cases, and
an eclectic mix of decorative props. The
store aesthetic reflects the same sensibility as the brand itself – one that is
both classic and casual with a modern, energetic spirit.
Openings across Europe and the Middle East will follow in the
latter part of 2018 and through 2019.
