THE Australian shoe brand Ugg has opened its first shop in the south at Gunwharf Quays.

It is only the third store in the UK selling the premium sheepskin footwear at discount prices.

Peter Emery, centre director at Gunwharf Quays, said: ‘Everyone at Gunwharf Quays is extremely excited about the opening of the new Ugg Australia store, it’s a strong addition to the retail offer here and an indication of the success of Gunwharf Quays that we are able to continue to offer our visitors new, well known and luxury brands at affordable outlet prices.’

The premium lifestyle brand opened its doors to excited shoppers on Saturday with a new look for the global retailer.

Dean Ventour, the chain’s retail director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said: ‘We’re pleased to open a store at Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth.

‘What makes this opening more exciting is that it’s one of the first outlet stores incorporating the new design layout for all outlet stores in Ugg Australia and we expect great things from both an experiential and efficiency perspective.’
