Country Road trio confirm 2014 opening

THE Country Road Group has confirmed an October opening date for its new Launceston store.

The store, to be housed in the former Chickenfeed store on the corner of Brisbane and Charles street, will incorporate the company's three brands: Country Road, Trenery and Witchery.

Country Road Group chief operating officer David Thomas said works on the store will start later in the year.

``We are hugely excited about the opportunity this brings to Launceston which we see as a key Australian market which is currently under provided for in the fashion space,'' he said.

Country Road last had a Launceston store about 25 years ago in the Brisbane Street Mall.

The business announced a record net profit of $37.95 million for the six months to December 28 which it attributed in part to growth in store numbers.
