USPA Properties, Inc., global steward of the U.S. Polo Assn. brand, and Arvind Lifestyle Brands, a subsidiary of Arvind Mills, announce the opening of the 50th U.S. Polo Assn. brand retail store in India. The 50th store is located in Mumbai at Linking Road, an iconic premium shopping destination in India.

“International expansion is a key strategy for the U.S. Polo Assn. brand and the opening of a 50th store in India reinforces U.S. Polo Assn.'s strength as a leading International brand," said David Cummings, president and CEO of USPA Properties, Inc.

“This opening also marks an important moment in our relationship with Arvind, a licensee and valued partner to us for several years. Arvind has done a tremendous job in expanding the business in India. We look forward to continuing to work together to provide the Indian market with apparel and other products that are true to the heritage of the sport of polo.”

Arvind Brands has been the exclusive manager and authorized supplier of the U.S. Polo Assn. brand in India since 2007.

“This is an exciting day for Arvind and the U.S. Polo Assn. brand in India,” said J. Suresh, MD and CEO of Arvind Lifestyle Brands and Retail. “The popularity of polo in India has led to demand for retail apparel and other merchandise that are true to the sport. No other brand represents the heritage of the sport as well as the U.S. Polo Assn., reflected in the popularity of the brand within India. We are excited to open the 50th store and look forward to continued growth in India.”
