The opening of its first UK store at such a high profile location demonstrates Royal Selangor’s ambition to expand into the UK market, coinciding with the 130th anniversary of the brand. The 1,317 square foot store on King’s Road will be open for business by early May, selling items such as pewter corporate gifts, wine accessories, christening gifts and tableware.
Tom Stanbury, Director, CBRE Retail said: “Royal Selangor is a world renowned brand and many will be surprised it doesn’t already have a retail presence here in the UK. The Kings Road is the ideal location for a business with such a fine heritage and this store opening marks another step in their global expansion as the company celebrates 130 years of business.”
Peter Coleman, MD, Royal Selangor UK said: “We are delighted to be opening our first standalone UK store on the King’s Road. Consumers will now be able to see the full breadth of craftsmanship in the gift, table and barware we offer and get to know more about the intriguing brand behind the pieces they are so familiar with.”
