The upmarket German department store retailer Breuninger is preparing to open its fully redesigned 11,000 square-meter branch in Nuremberg, in the southern German state of Bavaria, featuring an expanded range of premium and luxury brands as well as two new gastronomic outlets.

The re-opening of the department store, redesigned by architectural firm Blocher Partners, is planned for the beginning of September and will serve as a crucial complement to Breuninger’s online business. “Even in challenging times like now, we firmly believe in brick-and-mortar retail,” said Breuninger’s chief executive Holger Blecker.

Breuninger is known for selling a great selection of premium outdoor brands both in its physical stores and through its online shop, including Peak Performance, Arc’teryx, The North Face, Salomon, Icebreaker, Odlo, Meru, Vaude, Schöffel and CMP.
