Arc’teryx have announced plans to open their first stand-alone store in Europe, to be run in partnership with Snow + Rock. The shop will be located in St Martin’s Courtyard in London’s Covent Garden, and opens in August.
Covent Garden is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and St Martin’s Courtyard is a unique and stylish shopping and dining destination in the heart of this vibrant shopping district. The St Martin’s Courtyard development has created a prestigious pedestrian shopping area linking Long Acre and Seven Dials, adjacent to Snow+Rock’s existing Mercer Street store.
Arc’teryx have a well-earned reputation for high quality apparel with meticulous attention to detail and they recently launched the first new generation Gore-Tex Pro jackets available in the UK, the Arc’teryx Beta LT jacket.
Having introduced Arc’teryx to the UK in 2000, and helped grow the Canadian brand to where it is today, it was only natural that Snow+Rock was chosen as their partner to open a store in the UK. Neil Bradley, Regional Commercial Director EMEA at Arc’teryx commented: “We’re thrilled to continue the rollout of Arc’teryx within the UK. There’s a growing, loyal following for the brand and this partner-store is a new way for us to make more Arc’teryx products available to our consumers whilst also allowing us to give more of a flavour of what the brand stands for. To do this together with one of our retail partners is also very satisfying; we are really dedicated to working together with our customers to build our joint business.”
The new Arc’teryx brand store will open in time for the Autumn/Winter season with a comprehensive range of product covering Ski Touring, Mountaineering, Alpine Climbing and Hiking. The store will also be the first place to see many products, events and offers in the UK.
