J.Crew to Look at Continental Europe in Expansion Drive
J.Crew, the retail chain that's opening its first Asian stores this week, plans to expand its international push with outlets in continental Europe and will be scouting for locations in Paris. The company plans to open stores in mostly capital cities worldwide to boost brand awareness, said CEO Millard "Mickey" Drexler. The company currently has no presence in continental Europe. J.Crew has been expanding overseas and the Hong Kong stores are part of its plan to open outlets abroad this year, including one in London and about four in Canada after opening three in the U.K. in 2013.
