Removing Ralph

Section:

Ralph Lauren are latest to board-up shop in Fulham Road, London

 

In April, Ralph Lauren shut their flagship Polo store in Fifth Avenue and now they’ve closed one of their two stores on London’s Fulham Road too.

 

Whilst the reasoning for closing the Chelsea outlet of Ralph Lauren Kids is unknown, the firm has joined many other retailers on the stretch opposite Pelham Crescent to board-up shop.

 

Matthew Steeples, editor-in-chief of The Steeple Times, observes:

 

“With an ever-declining number of residents in the Royal Borough, ever increasing commercial rents at the behest of greedy landlords and the prospect of the uncertainty of Brexit, sadly, this won’t be the last closure in the locality.”

  1. The quality is crap nowadays!!!!!!!!!! A once great brand wrecked!!!!!!!!!!!! A load of old tat!!!!!!!!!!! Close the rest of them down – send in the wrecking ball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. One hates agreeing with Rod but I was in there the other day and the quality of their stuff is ghastly. Vulgar and only suitable for
    Australians.
    Yes, let’s blame that on Brexit!
    The rent they would be paying would be £270,000 a year plus another 40% of that for biz rates. With a combination of rubbish product, rent and biz rates it was bound to close

    • It was there for over 10 years. Conditions have changed hugely in the last year and both greed and the uncertainty of Brexit have caused many traders in the area to leave. La Brasserie is another case in point and the closure of Swarlish (sp?) next door to RLK, Louise Bradley and Mrs Hoppen’s gallery in Walton Street are just a couple of examples.
