Mango forges ahead with US expansion
Mango will be forging ahead with its US expansion next year with the opening of five new stores in Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania.
Four shops in Washington will be situated in the Tysons Corner, Westfield Montgomery and Pentagon City shopping centres, as well as at 950 F Street in the heart of the downtown shopping district. All will span around 400 square metres and will feature the retailer’s Mediterranean-inspired New Med store concept.
Meanwhile, Mango will launch a 350 square metre shop in the King of Prussia shopping centre, Pennsylvania’s biggest mall.
The news follows previous openings in New York, Florida, Texas, Georgia and California in 2022 and 2023.
Mango is aiming to have a total of around 40 US stores by 2024. It wants the country to become one of its top five markets in terms of turnover through increasing its number of physical stores and driving online sales on mango.com and in marketplaces.
Daniel López, Mango’s director of expansion and franchises, said: “After the excellent reception of Mango in New York and Miami and the recent arrival in Texas, Georgia and California, we are very excited to bring the brand experience physically for the first time in Washington D.C. and in Pennsylvania as part of our ambitious development plan for the coming months in the United States, one of our key markets in the coming years.”
The retailer has been present in the US since 2006 but strengthened its commitment to the market in late 2017 with the refurbishment of the SoHo store and an agreement with Macy’s in 2019 to accelerate the firm’s online growth in the country.
