Topshop confirms first standalone German store openings

Topshop has confirmed it would open its first standalone, bricks and mortar German stores in November, three years after it first flagged the idea of expanding there. 

The first store, covering 14,000 sq ft over three-storeys, will be in Galeria Kaufhof in Alexanderplatz, Berlin while the second is a two-storey, 12,000 sq ft shop in CentrO, Oberhausen.

The Berlin and Oberhausen shops will open on November 17 and 24 respectively.

The iconic British high street retailer also confirmed it planned for further store openings in Germany in 2017.
