US eCommerce Site Launched - International Expansion
The UK clothing and textile products manufacturing sector extends from fashion apparel, footwear, leather goods and accessories and hosiery to areas as diverse as tents, tarpaulins, sails, protective wear, wet/dry suits, medical garments, automotive components, design, handcraft tailoring, kilt making and Saville Row tailoring. Shopping centres have increased in importance at the expense of traditional high street shopping centres. Town centre management schemes have to a certain extent limited the decline of some high streets, though these often include a covered multiple outlet shopping centre annexe, which helps to manage the growing differential between the planned centre and traditional high street shops and find alternative uses for redundant space.
