Iconic London Fishing Store Opens in St Petersburg
The store named “Farlows on Palace Square” opened on the 4th June and is located in one of the prime areas in St Petersburg inside the golden triangle. This is a very similar prestigious location within the city to the London store’s 9 Pall Mall address.
At the present time the store will be operated completely independently of Farlows using local distributors and its own management. The store will not be able to display the Royal Warrant other than as a reference to the store being in close association with Farlows and with their full support.
Farlows Director Richard Hewitt stated: “We are delighted that Mr Rybalchenko has recognised what a powerful brand Farlows is within the game fishing fraternity. Together with his incredible salmon fishing resource at www.kharlovka.com this can only strengthen our brands and be very positive for the industry. This is seen as a very exciting development and a new era for Farlows Group Ltd and could lead to similar licensing arrangements in other global locations.”
Vladimir Rybalchenko added: “The opening of this prestigious store in the heart of St Petersburg is part of our continuing strategy of providing the very best service to our game fishing clients. To be able to follow in the footsteps of Charles Farlow who founded the brand in 1840 is indeed an honour and will add greatly to the status of our new store”.
Owner Vladimir Rybalchenko hit the headlines last summer following his purchase of the Atlantic Salmon Reserve in Russia from Peter Power as we reported hereon FishandFly.com .
