Thérapie plots 100 England-based clinic openings by 2021
Ireland-based advanced skincare group Thérapie Clinic has outlined ambitious plans to open a total of 100 clinics across England in the next three years, with hopes to launch 30 sites in 2019 alone.
Five new locations are scheduled to open in the UK by November 2018 – three in London at Westfield London Shopping Centre, Westfield Stratford City Shopping Centre and Wigmore Street, a 4,000sq ft premise which will be the brand's flagship, plus one in Sheffield’s Meadowhall Shopping Centre and another on Cross Street, Manchester.
More sites are scheduled for Bromley, Romford, Canary Wharf and Liverpool Street. The brand said its expansion plans will create more than 1,000 new jobs.
The group has 22 clinics across Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Thérapie managing director Phillip McGlade told Professional Beauty: “We see this as a big opportunity for someone like ourselves to offer our services to the general UK market. We’ve had a lot of customers ask us to open up in England because there’s no one who matches us on the price point and quality.
“We want to get the UK up and running as a steady ship and after that we will look at launching into other countries, such as America. We have one clinic in India already, with another one opening soon, so this may be an area we expand more in the future.”
Thérapie, which has 23 sites across Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland, specialises in aesthetic beauty treatments such as laser, dermal fillers, peels and microneedling, and currently has more than 250,000 clients. It opened its first England site in Newcastle’s Metro Centre on May 26.
