Paul Smith closes all stores in Germany

Inflation and consumer restraint following the pandemic made the company’s own bricks-and-mortar stores in prime locations such as Munich’s Luitpoldblock and Hamburg’s Hohe Bleichen increasingly unprofitable.

The first store was opened in Hamburg in 2014 and now, shortly before its 10th anniversary in May 2024, all of its own stores in Germany will be closed at the end of the month.

The brand will continue to be available in Germany via existing partners and wholesalers.
