Company Snapshot

Topshop is a British multinational retailer which specializes in fashion clothing, shoes, make-up and accessories.

Topshop was founded in 1964 as Peter Robinson's Top Shop, a youth fashion brand within the Sheffield branch of Peter Robinson, a now-defunct British department store chain. The first stand-alone Topshop store was opened in 1970. In 1970, Topman was created as a spin-off brand to cater for male customers and is now run as a separate chain, although some stores are co-located.

It has around 440 shops across 37 countries and online operations in a number of its markets. Its current CEO is Katie Foster and it is part of the Arcadia Group, which is controlled by Sir Philip Green, and owns a number of other retail outlets including Burton, Dorothy Perkins and Miss Selfridge.
