New Look History
In 1969, Tom Singh of South Africa opened the first New Look store in Taunton, a small town in the United Kingdom. When the company first began, it was owned by Apax Partners and Permira, two private equity groups. In 2015, the brand was sold to Brait SE for over £780 million.
Since its founding, New Look has rapidly expanded across the globe. In 2008, the company opened its largest retail store in the Chicago One Shopping Centre, a pivotal point in the brand’s history. The following year, New Look expanded its brand even further and opened its first store in Russia.
In 2010, New Look purchased the former site of a Borders bookstore in the Glasgow Fort Shopping Park, spanning over 1,700 square metres. This opening marked New Look’s 300th flagship store - a major achievement for the brand.
Today, New Look has roughly 1,160 store locations around the world. What began as a small brand in the United Kingdom has grown into one of the most popular chain of street shops in the world, making New Look the popular choice of shoppers around the globe.
