Global fashion brand Lee Cooper expands in Russia with the opening of new standalone stores.

With Moscow and St. Petersburg the number of standalone stores in the Russian market has increased to six. The interior of the new stores is inspired by the East London street style with a British rock’n’roll attitude to amplify Lee Cooper’s brand identity.

CEO of Lee Cooper, Andy Dunkley, comments: “We are delighted that our global retail expansion continues with a great partner in Russia. Our global retail sales have now passed the $500Million mark with 2013 being the fourth year in a row of strong double digit growth.”

In addition, Lee Cooper has recently opened their first franchise store in Perm. For the Russian retail expansion further store openings are planned for the end of 2013 in Yekaterinburg. The partner of Lee Cooper in Russia, retailer LVB, plans at least five more openings in Moscow and other key regions over the coming months.
