Dubai, 14 June 2012: Leading fashion retailer, Landmark International, celebrated its 100th store yesterday with the opening of both Koton and New Look in Al Qasr Mall in Riyadh. Landmark International is a division of Landmark Group, one of the largest retail conglomerates in the Middle East.

The new Koton and New Look stores in Saudi Arabia are complete with the latest Spring / Summer 2012 collections offering on-trend pieces for men, women and children. 

This is a significant milestone for the company, which launched the first New Look store in the Middle East in 2006.  Despite the changes in the global economic environment, Landmark International has continued to sustain a strong growth rate throughout the region including Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

With an expanding portfolio of international fashion brands, currently including Koton, Lipsy, New Look and Reiss, Landmark International holds a substantial retail presence across the region. This rapid expansion has ensured that more than 1,600 staff are employed within the division to support over 600,000 square feet of retail space.

Commenting on the division's accomplishment, Miles Young, General Manager of Landmark International, said: "The 100th store is a tangible representation of our group's success. We are constantly searching to bring new and exciting brands to the region as well as developing our existing portfolio." 

Acknowledging the compelling drive of the Landmark International team, Mr Young commented, "The growth of Landmark International would not be possible without the hard work, and commitment of the team, from the shop floor to the CEO. I would personally like to thank all of our staff for their continued passion and belief in the brands."

Landmark International's expansion plans will see a further 20 stores open in the next year, with both Koton and New Look entering Qatar by the end of 2013.  Beyond this, the group is committed to doubling its portfolio within the next five years.
