Public Desire eyes US following sales increase

Endaba Group

UK footwear retailer, founded in 2014 in Manchester, predicted sales of £3m for the year ending January 1 2016, but exceeded them, reaching £9m. They have target sales of £20m this year, expecting to turn its first profit too. They are now looking into their international expansion and are launching a site for the US next month. Existing stockists include Asos.com and they are wanting to open international wholesale accounts later on this year as well.

Managing director Qasim Akhlaq said: “To stand out in today’s crowded marketplace we set out to create a brand with a unique identity; with our combination of sought after designs, manufacturing innovation and exceptional social media following we’re now in a strong position to become a leading international footwear brand.”
