Luxury goods retailer Coach is launching its first store in the South East at Kent’s Bluewater shopping centre.
Slated to open in September, the new 1750sq ft store will be located on the Lower Guildhall, adjacent to House of Fraser, and will stock men’s and women’s products.
Once opened, the Bluewater store will become US retailer’s third store outside of London, following recent openings in Victoria Quarter in Leeds and Birmingham’s Bullring shopping centre.
“Coach are delighted to open in Bluewater this autumn as it is known as a fantastic shopping destination,” Coach Europe president Andrew Stanleick said.
“We look forward to launching the Coach modern luxury experience and collections to the South East.”
Also opening this summer at Bluewater are Belgian chocolatier Godiva and health and beauty retailer Neal’s Yard Remedies.
Bluewater recently welcomed a string of other high-profile retailers, such as the opening of Smashbox and its first store in the South East, Missguided, which launched its first store outside of London earlier this month.
