On Friday, 29 April, Icon Outlet at The O2 has said it will re-open the last remaining stores, 10 weeks after the extensive damage to the roof of The O2 which caused by Storm Eunice in February.
Joining the line-up at the same time is Skopes, the independent menswear tailoring brand. Skopes is making its Icon Outlet debut with a 2,110 sq ft store on the upper level.
The brand will complement the re-opening of other retailers at the destination, such as Nike, Adidas, Next, Levi’s and Lids, as well as popular leisure concepts, Selfie Factory and Tikky Town.
Janine Constantin-Russell, managing director of Icon Outlet and The O2’s Entertainment District, said: “We are so pleased to see Icon Outlet fully open. Despite the temporary closures, we have experienced an incredibly strong March, which is testament to the destination’s appeal to consumers and the commitment of our retailers, restaurants and leisure operators.
“We are looking forward to welcoming visitors back to experience our full array of high-calibre brands once again, including our newest addition, Skopes. As we make our final preparations, we are very grateful for the continued support of staff, suppliers, stakeholders and visitors. The past few months have highlighted the importance of having a strong and dynamic team at our destination; one that I’m extremely proud to be a part of.”
Michael Barber, head of retail at Skopes, added: “Icon Outlet is a key location for us and we are thrilled to be launching in such an iconic destination. We have witnessed Icon Outlet and The O2’s strong bounceback and following their impressive sales performance, we’re looking forward to welcoming new visitors to enjoy Skope’s quality tailored menswear.”
