Scotch & Soda leases retail outlet in Leiden

Scotch & Soda has signed a lease with Green Real Estate for an approximately 225 sq. m. retail space at Aalmarkt 8a in Leiden. The Dutch fashion company plans to open its Leiden store in the spring of 2018.

Founded as a Dutch young fashion company in the 1980s, Scotch & Soda was renamed and re-launched in 2001. In addition to men’s clothing, Scotch & Soda produces women’s clothing (Maison Scotch), boys' clothing (Scotch Shrunk), girls’ clothing (Scotch R'Belle), denim and urban products under the Amsterdams Blauw brand. There is also a perfume line by the name of Barfly.

The fashion company owns more than 150 retail outlets. In the Netherlands, the company operates in seventeen towns and cities, each of which has one or more Scotch & Soda retail outlets. Leiden will be the eighteenth city to get a Scotch & Soda retail outlet. The company’s products are also sold online, and in more than 8,000 other department stores and retail outlets around the world.

CBRE advised the landlord in this transaction, working closely with Basis Bedrijfshuisvesting, a corporate real estate company. Kokelenberg & Ouwehand advised the tenant.
