Hosiery retailer Calzedonia looking to enter the UK
Jun '11
Cushman & Wakefield has been exclusively retained by Italian hosiery and beachwear retailer Calzedonia to acquire stores in London with a view to rolling-out the brand across the UK.

Calzedonia was founded in 1987 close to Verona, in Vallese di Oppeano, Italy. It currently has over 1,300 stores worldwide in countries including Italy, Austria, Cyprus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Lebanon, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, France, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Romania.

Duncan Gilliard in Cushman & Wakefield's London retail team said, “Calzedonia is looking for six stores between 60-100 sq.m in high footfall locations across London. Following its success across Europe, the retailer is keen to expand across the UK following the establishment of its London stores.”

The success of Calzedonia is the result of a number of factors: the huge range of products, the particular attention paid to fashion, the unbeatable quality-price ratio. These are some of the features that have enabled Calzedonia to satisfy even its most demanding customers.
