International homewares retailer House confirms April launch in the UK
Established in Australia in 1978, and now a global homewares retailer, House has confirmed its UK launch for mid-April with store openings at Westgate in Oxford and Meadowhall in Sheffield. It will have six stores open before the end of the June and plans to open 75 stores within three years.
MMX Retail is the sole property adviser to Global Retail Brands. Partner Nick Symons said: “The House concept has been exceptionally well received since we announced the intended UK launch last Autumn. The quality of their store fit-out and their product ranges, combined with strength of the staff, has impressed all the major shopping centre owners and their advisers.
“Landlords have realised that House provides a very different proposition for the customer, with a true omni-channel experience – demonstrating that physical stores combined with a quality on-line presence, can enhance the overall customer experience and the success of the business.”
