Well, what can we say? This year so far has been a big one for us! As you might have seen on our social media, we have been busy busy busy, opening a total of 8 stores so far this year (and we are only just in August!)
Over the past 13 weeks, we have managed to open a total of 6 stores in London, and there is still more to come, so keep your eyes peeled.
Our big London journey started back in November last year, when we opened our first two stores in the Capital. The first on The Strand, directly opposite the Royal Courts of Justice and the second looking out onto St. Paul’s cathedral. That was a really exciting time for us, and the success of these two kick-started the big London expansion plan for 2017!
What feels like a long time ago, back in May we began by opening our two beautiful stores, the first on Baker Street, and the other within the O2 centre on Finchley Road (our first London store to offer our perfectly-sized kids range). Then we hit June, where our next stop was opening in the stunning building at 14 Austin Friars.
And then came July, which has been one of the busiest months we’ve ever had, with not one, not two but three store openings over the space of four short weeks, phew! On the 10th July we opened on Kingsway (our largest store so far), then a week later we opened on Grosvenor Street, in the heart of Mayfair. Then last but not least, we opened our store at Waterloo Bridge just this week, which is already doing exceptionally well, we are super proud.
But the fun doesn’t end there, oh no, we have more yet to come! With our next store opening on 4th September on Gresham Street, we hope you are as excited as we are.
