International clothing brand Koton will be soon available in Saratov. The flagship will open in Tau Gallery, super regional Shopping & Entertainment Center. Maxim Samsonov, the executive director at TDS Corporation, says: “Koton shop of about 1,400 sq m will become an anchor retailer at the largest fashion gallery in the town. This is significant for our project as the brand enters into the local market for the first time”. Cushman & Wakefield, a global real estate adviser and the largest privately-held company in the world was exclusively appointed to support the deal.
Koton will host the first guests in Saratov this year already. It has more than 200 shops globally and is famous for rapid change of collections. Koton introduces 50 collections annually with about 10,000 units in the amount of 15,000,000 samples.
Ekaterina Zemskaya, Partner and the Head of Retail Agency at Cushman & Wakefield, comments: “Koton is a famous fashion brand which operates successfully in Russia and it made the choice of Tau Gallery to open its flagship format shop. The tenant-mix here includes both federal and international operators and now it has become stronger with Rendez-vous and New Balance to go to local market for the first time as well. In current complicated situation these retailers have chosen Tau Gallery. And this is one more proof of the project’s success. Tau Gallery project is significant for the whole Povolzhsky region”.
Tau Gallery will open in the near future. Thus Koton shop has already proceeded to finishing, as well as about other 50 retailers. Among them there are Auchan, Rive Gauche, Letoile, Detsky Mir, M-Video, Kids Space, Choupette and Acoola.
