(SGI) Patagonia opened its second store in the U.K. earlier this month, located in Bristol. It already has one in Manchester. The new 280-square-meter brand store will not only present the collections from the outdoor sports segments, covering climbing, snow sports, surfing and trail running, but will also serve as a meeting point for activists and sports communities of several kinds. It will host regular community events, such as film screenings and public talks, and will feature works from local Bristol artists. Located in an historic building on 81 Park Street near Bristol University, the space was formerly occupied by Levi’s. As with all Patagonia locations, the interior design seeks to preserve the historic building, honoring its surrounding history and culture. In Europe, Patagonia has 10 retail stores and is sold at over 1,200 multi-brand stores.
