Located at 11 Mercer Street and designed by Rohan’s in-house team in conjunction with Future Display Systems, the new store features the brand’s full range of innovative travel and outdoor clothing.  In addition, Ecco footwear, Life Systems accessories, and the UK’s largest range of Eagle Creek luggage are all showcased the store, which covers two floors. 

Scott Longstaff, Managing Director at Rohan added: “We are delighted to launch our new flagship store in this central London location.  It has a great atmosphere that makes it a wonderful place to shop and we look forward to becoming an established part of the area.”

Charles Owen, Portfolio Executive at Shaftesbury, added on behalf of Longmartin Properties: “Rohan’s choice of St Martin’s Courtyard for its London flagship reflects the strength of the destination, both in terms of the quality of its brands and the footfall it attracts.  Rohan adds to St Martin’s Courtyard’s other leading outdoor brands, such as Barbour and Jack Wolfskin, as well as the collection of premium fashion retailers and all-day restaurants that make it such a popular destination in London’s West End.”

The news follows the recent refurbishment of Bill’s restaurant in St Martins Courtyard, one of only three locations the brand chose to launch their new concept design and bespoke menu in the UK.

Colliers and Hanover Green Retail acted as letting agents on behalf of Longmartin Properties. CBRE are appointed as the asset manager on behalf of Longmartin Properties.
