Rcapital sells travel retailer Rolling Luggage to Samsonite

18/11/2014

Rcapital investee company Rolling Luggage, a leading global travel retailer, has today signed a seven year extension to its store portfolio at London Heathrow airport.

The new deal will see Rolling Luggage redevelop its stores – in Terminals 3, 4 and 5 – with a new, world-class retail concept with a greater emphasis on technology and digital activation to enhance customer service. The use of new technology will be at the heart of the proposition.

The agreement signals a new era for Rolling Luggage, saved as part of the global restructuring process of parent company Tie Rack Retail Group, which was acquired by Rcapital in 2013.

“With the support of Rcapital and our key brand partners, we look forward to opening our new store concept at Heathrow and delivering an exceptional customer experience and cutting edge luggage offer.”

Alex Willson, Rolling Luggage Managing Director
