Singaporeans are no strangers to UK retailers when it comes to online shopping. In fact, we are exceedingly familiar with brands like ASOS, Cath Kidston, Fred Perry, Ted Baker, Marks and Spencer and countless more.
While there are many UK retailers with physical presence in Singapore, we have seen in recent years how some of these big-name brands have pulled out of the Singapore and Asian market altogether.
Clothing brands such as Topman/Topshop, New Look, River Island are top fashion players who have left the local scene. Whether it’s due to operation cost reduction or faced with intense competition from other up and coming fashion labels, fans of those brands will miss the shopping experience that comes along with the physical store. Fret not. Customers can still purchase these brands from online and marketplace platforms.
Even without a physical store in Singapore, there isn’t a lack of demand for those brands that have left the local market. Many customers still flock to their international websites to shop and get their hands on these beloved brands.
