The Guardian reports this week that Flying Tiger Copenhagen is one of the fastest growing retailers in the UK. With 600 stores in 29 countries, the retailer sells homewares, funky, functional Danish design and affordable prices, the retailer focuses on bricks and mortar to drive their sales.
Tiger has been described as Denmark’s answer to Swedish rival Ikea, and a “posh Poundland”. Its products cost as little as £1 and its bestsellers during the Christmas period included a basketball net for toilet doors, a cocktail maker set and a handheld disco ball. The brand is now one of the fastest growing retailers in the UK. It has around 90 shops in the country and in 2015, the most recent financial accounts available, sales rose 69% to £62m. Tiger rebranded itself last year, changing its name to Flying Tiger Copenhagen.
