- Today, the company will open a new store in the Eldon Square shopping centre in Newcastle, one of the most-visited shopping centres in the United Kingdom.
With this new store, Mango is strengthening its presence in the United Kingdom, a key market in the company’s strategy, where it has over 40 stores.
Mango, one of Europe’s leading fashion groups, continues to implement its expansion plan in the United Kingdom with the opening of its first store in Newcastle today, located in the Eldon Square shopping centre, one of the most-visited shopping centres in the country.
With the opening of this new store, Mango is increasing its presence in Newcastle, where the company already has a concession in the Fenwick department store. The new store in Eldon Square has a selling space of more than 400 m2 and stocks the Woman line exclusively.
“The opening of our first store in Newcastle is a step further in our strategic goals for international expansion and strengthens our presence in the United Kingdom, a strategic market for Mango and one of the most important for the fashion world”, Daniel López, Mango’s Global Expansion Director, points out.
The store, which has created 15 new jobs, features the Mediterranean-inspired store concept, New Med, already present in some of the company’s flagship stores around the world, which aims to reflect the spirit and freshness of the brand and is strongly influenced by Mediterranean culture and style. Sustainability and architectural integration are key to this new concept, which is why new stores feature sustainable materials such as natural paint.
True to its commitment to sustainability, the new Mango store in Eldon Square has a Committed Box, a container in which customers can deposit their unwanted clothing and footwear to give them a second life, in addition to a dedicated click and collect zone for garment collections and returns.
