The leading British sex shop chain Ann Summers continues to grow. In addition to the 140 stores in the UK and Ireland, a new store has now been launched at Gatwick Airport.
Erotic retailer Ann Summers is the market leader in the UK stationary sex shop market. With 140 stores, the company has an estimated turnover of well over 100 million euros. The company, which was founded in 1970 at London’s Marble Arch, is thus apparently asserting itself successfully against increasing competition from online retailers.
Sex shops within airports are still a rarity. Beate Uhse’s branches at Munich and Zurich airports have been closed by now.
Ann Summers has now opened a new shop at Gatwick Airport. The store is located in the North Terminal of the second-largest British airport, where 46 million passengers take off and land every year. In addition to the company’s own sex toys, the chain also sells lingerie and underwear in its stores.
