Pre-owned ‘luxury’ retailer to open first UK store in London
An online brand specialising in pre-owned items has announced the launch of its first retail store in the City of London.
Xupes, which retails pre-owned watches, handbags, jewellery and art, is set to open its first physical store in the UK by London’s Royal Exchange.
Established in 2009 by entrepreneur Joseph McKenzie and his father Frank, Xupes specialises in the buying and selling of high-end items, stocking ‘luxury’ brands such as Rolex, Hermès and Chanel.
Xupes co-founder, Joseph McKenzie, commented: “We are extremely excited to be launching our first retail space in the UK in such a prominent location and amongst some of the world’s most exclusive brands, which we actually stock ourselves.
“Buying pre-owned not only makes financial sense for customers, but also provides access to vintage and classic designs that aren’t available from retailers any more. Add in the sustainability factor and we think it’s a proposition that really resonates with a lot of people.
“We want to help anyone who aspires to own one of these beautiful pieces of design and offer an enjoyable and trustworthy way of purchasing it, whether that be in one of our showrooms or via our website.”
