Superdry opened its 5,676 sq. ft store on the ground floor, joining the first tranche of over 100 shops, bars, restaurants, and leisure venues, including other retail names such as Adidas, Nike, Uniqlo and Mango, as well as designer favourites, Hugo Boss, Mulberry and Ralph Lauren.

Julian Dunkerton, Superdry Founder and CEO, commented on the opening: “Being a British brand, it’s great to have a store presence within such an iconic London landmark, opening its doors to the public for the first time in history, which Superdry is proud to be part of. Battersea Power Station will attract visitors from across the globe, offering both incredible leisure and strong retail business. We are excited to be expanding Superdry’s UK store collection within one of London’s hottest retail and leisure destinations, as well as increasing our presence within the capital”.
Superdry recently returned to profitability and reported an increase in revenues for its full year results. Total revenue increased 9.6% to £609.6 million year-on-year, largely as a result of lapping enforced store closures and lifting of COVID-919 restrictions in Superdry's key markets.
Last week, Superdry teamed up with MOBOLISE, the upskilling and recruitment platform for Black talent launched by MOBO’S Founder, Kanya King CBE, with the aim of ensuring that Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion is "further embedded within the brand’s DNA".
