Williams-Sonoma Lands Down Under
Staff Staff -- Furniture Today, May 16, 2013
Williams-Sonoma on May 2 opened four stores in the Bondi Junction suburb of Sydney, Australia: Williams- Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids and West Elm.
The multi-channel retailer also launched ecommerce websites in-the country shipping for the same four nameplates with product created specifically for Australian consumers and is shipping its first catalogs in the country this week.
The stores are the first retail locations outside of North America owned and operated by Williams-Sonoma. The company has franchise operations in Bahrain, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates.
