As a quick background the first store was opened in 1977 after its founder, Roy Raymond, was embarrassed when attempting to buy underwear for his wife a few years earlier.
He decided to found a store where men could feel comfortable buying lingerie, and it cost him $80,000 to setup. In their first year they made over $500,000 of sales!
There are now have 1035 stores (1,017 owned by the company and 18 independently) across the US, Canada and now the UK. Their sales for 2012 were a mind-boggling $6.12 billion (£3.88 billion)
Currently Victoria’s Secret has two stores in the UK, one in New Bond Street (Central London) and another in Westfield Stratford City (East London).
A new stores is just about to open at Stansted Airport, and the retailer will also be expanding to a few other select city’s in the near future. Meadowhall Jobs have searched for more details on these locations but cannot find a definitive list at the moment (stay tuned).
Details of where the store will be located within the Meadowhall are sparse at the moment, but Meadowhall Jobs understand that it will be a 13,000 sq ft store which will open in the autumn.
The future’s bright
Meadowhall Jobs are pleased to say that the future is looking great for the shopping centre. This new deal is just one of many and was brought about by the excellent work of British Land, the owner of the Meadowhall Centre following the strong sales in the last quarter.
British Land have also just reported that more than 25 million shoppers walked through it’s doors in 2012 – which is a staggering average of 68,870 shoppers a day!
