Rodd & Gunn to Add Two Northern California Stores
Rodd & Gunn is continuing its rollout in the American market.
The New Zealand-based men’s brand will add two more stores in the San Francisco Bay area this year, joining a unit at the Stanford Shopping Center, which opened in 2019, and an existing shop-in-shop inside Wingtip, a conglomerate of shops in the city’s financial district.
The openings will bring Rodd & Gunn’s total U.S. store count to 10 including Newport Beach, Los Angeles and San Diego in California, in addition to the DUMBO area of Brooklyn, Greenwich, Conn., Dallas and Bellevue, Wash. The new stores will be located at the newly expanded Westfield Valley Fair in Santa Clara, which will open in March, and Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek, slated for a July debut.
“We’re excited to continue our growth here in such a dynamic hub of innovation and influence,” said Mike Beagley, chief executive officer of Rodd & Gunn. “The Bay Area perfectly aligns with our brand’s target demographic of men who appreciate premium quality, effortless style and clothes that can be worn for work, play and everything in between.”
Rodd & Gunn’s heritage dates to 1946, when the brand’s English Pointer logo was used on a line of New Zealand-made shirts.
