America has given us so much already in terms of shopping destinations these past few years; Victoria’s Secret, Forever 21 and J Crew to name just three – and now we can add American Eagle Outfitters to that ever-expanding list too.
“We are excited to officially announce the upcoming launch of American Eagle Outfitters in the UK,” said Simon Nankervis, Executive Vice President of American Eagle Outfitters.
“We see a tremendous global appetite for both the American Eagle Outfitters and aerie brands, and believe that our presence in three of the most popular shopping destinations in England will provide great exposure for us in this significant new market.
“We are focused on profitably scaling our international growth and believe that American Eagle Outfitters will have great traction in the UK.”
We think it will do quite well, too – especially since we always load our suitcases with American Eagle Outfitters purchases whenever we go Stateside.
We can expect three American Eagle Outfitters stores to open before the year is out, in three of the top shopping destinations in the country: Bluewater in Kent, and the Westfield Stratford and Westfield White City too. Talk about going big or going home!
We’ll keep you posted with more deets about the stores as and when we get them; are you as excited as we are?
