Report: L'Oréal to expand Kiehl's in U.K.
NEW YORK — L'Oréal is looking to spread its Kiehl’s skin care brand across the United Kingdom this year, according to a published report in The Telegraph.
Kiehl’s opened its first of 15 U.K. locations back in 2002 and now plans to open 12 more stores across the U.K. this year, according to the article.
Founded in 1851 as an apothecary business in New York, Kiehl's has established a unique reputation in the prestige cosmetics market. The New York brand sold to L'Oréal in 2000 and the French beauty giant has since taken Kiehl’s from its East Village base in New York to 177 stores and 554 outlets worldwide.
