Basler Opens New Retail Store in the Somerset Collection in Troy, MI

  New York, NY, Dec. 5, 2009 – Basler America, Inc. today announced the opening of a new branded retail store at the South side of the Somerset Collection in Troy, Michigan. The 1.600 square-foot store is the third Basler store opened this year after Tyson´s Galleria, Washington, DC and The Waterside Shops in Naples, FL

  The Somerset Collection is located in the fourth wealthiest county in the US. It is anchored by Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue. High-profile specialty store tenants are Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Barneys, St. John, Tiffany and Burberry.

“We are very excited to have opened our first store in Michigan” said Ingo Hesse, Managing Director for Sales & Marketing. “The Basler retail stores are a great opportunity to showcase the Basler brand, build a strong retail business, which will in turn inspire the wholesale business in the North American market where we have been present for many years.” The Basler brand stands for quality and reflects contemporary fashion in a way which perfectly suits its clearly-defined target group – the discerning women above 45. Basler is renowned for highly sophisticated fashion for every occasion and is clearly positioned within the Bridge segment. This positioning is unique due to a well balanced combination of fashionable design and top quality products.

The Basler strategy is geared towards company operated retail spaces going forward. Basler has just taken over 10 locations from Bloomingdales as concessions and is investigating other high-end properties for Basler stores planned to open in 2010 and the years thereafter.
