It’s been on the rumour mill for ages but now it’s official. Williams Somoma Inc is opening its four super brands north of the bridge in Sydney’s Chatswood Chase this August, following on from the Bondi stores last year. Hooray!
All four stores will also open in Melbourne’s Chadstone Shopping Centre in late 2014/early 2015.
“We are excited to continue our global expansion in Australia,” said Laura Alber, President and Chief Executive Officer, Williams-Sonoma, Inc. “When we opened our stores in Bondi Junction last year, it was the first time we had showcased all four brands together side-by-side. We plan to replicate this in Chadstone shopping centre, where all four stores will also be inter-connected, the first time we have done this anywhere in the world.
“All four brands will also have stores in Chatswood Chase, making it easier for our customers to shop and mix and match products to create a complete home.
“We look forward to sharing our exceptional home furnishings along with unique in-store experiences and outstanding customer service with more Australian customers who want to decorate, entertain and live well.”
Williams-Sonoma, Inc. opened its first Australian stores for Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, and West Elm in Oxford Street Mall, Bondi Junction in May 2013 and another West Elm store at 464 Chapel Street, South Yarra in September 2013. All four brands ship across Australia via their e-commerce sites.
