Yours Clothing, the UK’s fastest growing plus-size fashion retailer, is excited to announce a further expansion of its international presence with the opening of its first standalone store in Germany, in Thier-Galerie shopping mall, in the heart of the city centre of Dortmund.
The store will be the brand’s first store in mainland Europe following the successful launch of a German language e-commerce website in May 2017. The Dortmund store will occupy 1,500sq ft of trading space and will create around eight new jobs.
The launch of the brand’s first German store follows a successful period of growth for the group, which now operates more than 145 stores in the UK and internationally. During the year ended January 2018, Yours Clothing saw a 22 per cent rise in revenues to £88.3 million (compared to £72.1 million in the previous year). In addition, international sales surged by 48 per cent, a true testament to its omni-channel business model.
The new store will stock a full range of the latest womenswear fashion in sizes 16 – 36 (EU 44 – 64), including lingerie, footwear and accessories. To celebrate the grand opening, plus size influencers @elabonella, @marenkiss and @infatstyle to name just a few, will be hosting the launch and sharing with customers their style inspiration and techniques.
Yours Clothing is actively seeking to open additional stores in Germany and across Europe, as part of its ambitious international growth plans.
Karen Luton, retail director at Yours Clothing, said: “We’re delighted to be opening our first standalone German store, following the growing appetite for the brand in Germany and positive response from customers online. We look forward to welcoming our first customers through the doors.”
The store is scheduled to open on Saturday 1 September 2018.
