The International jeweller, Thomas Sabo, increases its North West presence with a new flagship store at the Trafford Centre.
THOMAS SABO, a jeweller that specialises in high-quality sterling silver, has chosen to increase its North West presence by opening a new flagship store at the Trafford Centre and launching a concession in Selfridges in the city centre.
The company has invested in a significant expansion and high spec refit to its Trafford Centre store, taking it to 1460 square feet.
THOMAS SABO was set up in 1984 in Bavaria, by self-confessed jewellery enthusiast Thomas Sabo. Along with Creative Director Susanne Kölbli, Thomas has seen the company flourish on an international scale. Thanks to their love of detail, keen eye for development and undeniable nose for trends, the pair have managed to put silver firmly on the map, with stores throughout Europe, Asia, America and Australia.
It is now well established in the UK high street with 13 of its own stores and 22 concessions, largely in department stores. As well as the Trafford Centre the jewellers are also planning to open a 690 square feet store in Europe’s largest urban shopping centre, Westfield Stratford City, in London.
The latter is adjacent to the main Olympic site and the Olympic Stadium and will be open for business by the start of the games next year.
Harald Winzer, Managing and Sales Director for UK and Ireland, commented: “The UK has a become an important marketplace for THOMAS SABO and the development of the expanded store in Manchester demonstrates our confidence that the people of the North West want our jewellery, watches and beauty products.”
Commercial property solicitor of Linder Myers, who has acted for the company on all of its recent site acquisitions, is delighted to be playing a part in its expansion. He said: “The Company’s investment strategy in the North West is testament to their commitment to this region and the UK as a whole.”
