Chris Kampe, Managing Director Tully & Holland Retail Group Discusses Williams-Sonoma expansion to London

August 1, 2011 - Multichannel Merchant reports retail giant Williams-Sonoma is considering expansion next year into the UK after last month's launch of international and online ordering and shipping in 75 countries. Why London? Chris Kampe explains "after Canada, expansion into the UK is the next logical place to open stores for retailers."

"Several of Williams-Sonoma's multichannel contemporaries (Gap, Abercrombie, Coach, GameStop) operate stores internationally. The UK is the most international retail market in the world and London, like New York and San Francisco, is an ideal location for a flagship store to represent and build the brand."
