Lindex opens store in London

Lindex will open their first store in the fashion metropolis London during spring 2015. The store will open in the shopping centre Westfield Stratford City and a local distribution centre will also be in place. The local online shopping site for the fashion chain has already been launched.

The investment is an important step in strengthening the Lindex brand internationally and a continuation of the fashion chain's international expansion.

The store will offer a modern shopping environment that highlights the brand's Scandinavian heritage through interior decoration and environment.

"We strive to offer a world-class fashion experience, both in-store and online. This includes everything from interior decoration and service level to the fashion we offer and how we present it. Having a good store location along with an online store allows us to reach a wide range of customers starting from day one," says Ingvar Larsson.  

A high level of accessibility is an important factor for establishment. Thanks to a distribution centre in place, the store can get quick replenish. British customers can already now shop easily and conveniently in local currency at lindex.com. Via the online store, customers from other parts of the country can also be reached.
