4th March 2024 | Jack Oliver

Shaftesbury Capital has announced that Arc’Teryx has opened the doors to its flagship Covent Garden store, following a relocation from Long Acre.

Taking 8,000 sq ft in the newly refurbished listed building at 41-42 King Street, the outdoor apparel retailer’s store offers a range of technical gear, footwear, and accessories across a number of activities including trail running, climbing, hiking, and skiing.

The new store also offers a range of services such as Arc’teryx’s circularity programme which focuses on the care, repair, and upcycling of its products.

Arc’teryx’s new flagship store sits alongside a number of retailers on King Street, including Creed, Glossier, Hackett, Jo Malone London, Mejuri, Polo Ralph Lauren, and Reformation, and joins the likes of HOKA, Peloton, Axel Arigato and Vivo Barefoot as part of the performance wear line-up across the whole portfolio.

Michelle McGrath, executive director, Shaftesbury Capital, said: “We are pleased to support Arc’teryx’s growth within Covent Garden and deliver a newly refurbished heritage space for the brand to thrive. Its significant upsize onto King Street is a testament to the unique opportunities we provide as well as our role in nurturing and investing in our customers, whilst we continue to create a thriving, experiential mixed-use district.”

Sven Radtke, EMEA general manager, Arc’teryx, added: “Covent Garden is a key location for us, and we are delighted to have been given the opportunity to expand our presence and be situated alongside such iconic and renowned brands. Similar to our Long Acre store, this space will transcend our brand ethos to an even higher degree with more options for visitors and accessible services available. Shaftesbury Capital has been paramount to our brand exposure within the UK, and we look forward to welcoming new and dedicated customers into our new space.”
