Eight new stores for Williams-Sonoma


potterybarnUS-based homewares retailer, Williams-Sonoma, will open eight stores in Australia this year as part of its global expansion.

Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, and West Elm will all open stores in Chatswood Chase, Sydney in August followed by a further four stores to open in Melbourne’s Chadstone Shopping Centre later in the year.

“We are excited to continue our global expansion in Australia,” said Laura Alber, president and CEO, 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 opened its first Australian stores for Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, and West Elm in Oxford St Mall, Bondi Junction in May 2013 and another West Elm store along Chapel Street, South Yarra in September 2013.

All four brands ship across Australia via e-commerce sites williams-sonoma.com.au, potterybarn.com.au, potterybarnkids.com.au, and westelm.com.au.
