The casualwear brand Marc O’Polo from Stephanskirchen, Germany, has planned new store openings in Germany, Russia and China to strengthen the growth of the company.

In fall 2014, Marc O’Polo expects to open the first store in Shanghai and Chengdu, after the company signed a master franchise contract in China earlier this year.

Following the two store openings in Moscow in April 2014, a further store will be opened in October 2014 at the shopping center Kuntzevo Plaza. On 150 sqm the store will present the casual women and men collections. Altogether, Marc O’Polo is represented in Russia with 15 monobrand stores as well as one shop-in-shop store. In October 2014, one further store with a sales area of 160 sqm will open in Ülemiste Center in Tallin, Estonia.

At the end of August 2014, the womenswear and menswear stores in Kassel, Germany, will merge into one single store with a sales area of 350 sqm. Another two franchise stores will open: in August 2014 a womenswear store in Kleve and in September 2014 a womenswear and menswear store in Recklinghausen. Overall, Marc O’Polo is represented in Germany with 54 own stores and 91 franchise stores.
