Vagabond, which recently opened its sixth store in London’s Paddington, is planning to launch an additional four sites in the City, Canary Wharf and on the South Bank between September and December this year, reports Drinks Retailing News.

Managing Director Stephen Finch said: “We are now heavier on the on-trade side and these new sites will continue with this format, but we will always maintain a retail element. 

“The new sites will be larger, similar in size to our Victoria, Paddington and Battersea sites. They will have a larger footprint because we find that has been more interesting for us. One of our biggest challenges is that, during busy periods, we can’t get enough people to fit into the smaller units. 

“We have looked at areas that have a high concentration of good quality office workers. In the daytime they come for the retail element and at night they come in for drinks.”
