Topshop began planning its expansion to the United States in the mid-2000s and was tipped to

open in New York as early as 2007. [45] Currently it operates via a website and sells
in Nordstrom shops. A small number of wholly owned shops were located in major cities. [46] On 5
November 2014 it opened a flagship shop in New York City, located on Fifth Avenue. The shop
was the largest international site, and second only to the Oxford Street, London shop in square
footage.[47] This is its second shop in New York City, the first having opened on Broadway in 2009.

 On 23 May 2019, Arcadia filed for Chapter 15 bankruptcy in the United States and announced
that all 11 freestanding Topshop stores there would be liquidated and closed within the coming
months; however, Topshop would continue to sell its merchandise exclusively at Nordstrom
locations.[49][50][51]
Topshop announced a five-year international expansion plan in early 2011, planning to open new
shops across Asia, Australia and the US as well as seeking opportunities in Europe. [52] Although
the Japanese flagship shops launched in 2006, all 5 shops in Japan shut in 2015. In 2013, parent
group Arcadia began stepping up its franchise deals, announcing a planned 150 new shop
openings with partners in Canada, Australia and Vietnam, to include Topshop and Topman
shops.[53]
Topshop expanded into Australia in 2011, with shops in New South Wales and Victoria. [54][55] In
2013 it opened a shop in Brisbane's CBD in a location previously occupied by Borders. However,
in mid-2017 Topshop's Australian operations went into voluntary administration.[56] By mid 2019,
only Sydney's Market Street store remained opened, after the closure of stores at Westfield Bondi
Junction and Melbourne's Emporium earlier in the year.[57] In March 2020 Topshop closed its final
Australian store, 11 years afters its initial launch. [58]
In November 2012, Topshop launched its first shop in South Africa. In April 2013 a Topshop-
Topman shop launched in Cape Town, at the V&A Waterfront.[59] On 24 October 2013, Topshop
opened a concession at Galeries Lafayette in Paris, its first outlet in France.[60]
In 2015, Topshop opened a flagship shop in Auckland and 10 months later a shop in Wellington.
The company has had a presence in New Zealand since 2010, opening a small concession within
a department store in 2010.[61] Located on Auckland's Queen Street, the flagship shop sold out of
some of its ranges before it had opened. [62][63] In September 2017, the franchise went into
receivership and both shops closed on September 28, 2017.
Topshop had originally expanded into Singapore since 2000 with the outlet opening at Orchard
Road. On 17 September 2020, all stores were eventually closed down citing losses, as its focus
shift towards online shopping.[64]
