The shop will be inaugurated in late October at Clarks Village, a retail outlet which attracts over 4 million visitors a year. Pittards will sell finished products manufactured with its high quality leathers including gloves, bags, accessories, and footwear.

An advertising campaign is planned to accompany the launch.
