HOUSE Confirms April UK Launch

Homewares retailer HOUSE and its parent company Global Retail Brands, has confirmed it will launch its first four stores in the UK mid-next month. It also confirmed that it will have six stores open before the end of June.

“We are also excited to reveal that we have won the exclusive rights to launch a number of international brands into the UK that are not yet available here,” said Owner of HOUSE and Founder and Executive Chairman of Global Retail Brands, Steven Lew. “We love launching new brands and being the first to market for our loyal customers.”

The global expansion will create 1,000 jobs in the UK with plans to open 75 stores within 3 years. The first store will open in Westgate in Oxford, followed by Meadowhall in Sheffield.

“Landlords have realised that HOUSE provides a very different proposition for the customer, with a true omnichannel experience – demonstrating that physical stores combined with a quality online presence, can enhance the overall customer experience and the success of the business,” said Nick Symons, Partner at MMX Retail, the sole property adviser to Global Retail Brands. “We are obviously delighted to be involved as part of the HOUSE advisory team, and we are excited about the first four store openings in April.”

HOUSE is the latest Aussie brand to expand to the UK, following in the footsteps of other retailers such as Smiggle,  Typo, Kikki.K and Bunnings.
