Inglot Cosmetics Ireland have announced their strategic Next UK partnership.
Inglot Ireland are set to open two new concession stores within retail giant, Next, in the UK, with further expansion planned.
The announcement comes as Inglot Cosmetics Ireland celebrates 10 years in business.
In what will mark the cosmetic retailer’s first incursion into concession retailing in the UK, Next will allocate space to its new partner in two of its biggest and top performing stores in Manchester, the Arndale Centre and the Trafford Centre.
The first two concessions will open simultaneously in May, with many more planned in the coming months.
Speaking at the announcement, Jane Swarbrigg, Managing Director, Inglot Ireland, said:
“This is a very special year for us as we are celebrating 10 years since we opened our first store in Liffey Valley in 2009.
“Since then, we have grown the business significantly and we now have 22 stores across
Ireland and the UK, with more standalone stores planned for the UK.
“Diversification is vital for success, which is why this strategic partnership with Next is so significant, not only will it broaden our distribution and geographic reach, but it also presents an opportunity for Inglot to reach new audiences in the Next customer base.
“We look forward to working with the Next team on the roll- out of our new concessions in the coming months.”
