About Case London Limited

 

The business Revelation Piccadilly was first established in 1923 when a luggage store opened at 170 Piccadilly, making this flagship store one of the oldest luggage stores in the world.

Throughout the war years, the store survived, offering Revelation branded luggage which was considered to be the premier collection of luggage - especially the unique expanding suitcases, serving Royalty, Noblemen, and Dignitaries amongst others.

In the late 1960's the owners sold the rights of the Revelation name to Antler for the purpose of producing and wholesaling luggage. The store continued to trade as Revelation, selling more upmarket, multi-branded luggage collections.

In 1988 Revelation Piccadilly was sold to Stephen Spitz who set about refurbishing the store, and offering a more contemporary mix of products. It was felt that there was no better-end luggage business being offered in the UK and through a sister company (Pelham) started to import, distribute and retail various international brands, including TUMI, Zero Halliburton, Kipling, and Longchamp.

Having secured 2 further stores, one in Guildford and one in the City of London, the Retail business was sold in 1992, and Stephen Spitz pursued other retail interests. In mid 1997 Revelation Piccadilly was repurchased by Stephen Spitz and his key management team.

2000 saw the retail stores change their name to Case - Luggage & Leather Goods. The first website for the company was also launched, however, it looked a little different to the current version!

2001 saw the opening of our store in Bluewater shopping centre. The store looks completely different now!

In 2002 Case opened the first of its airport stores at London Stanstead Airport. Selling a range of handbags from brands including Mulberry & Longchamp, the store proved popular with all travellers.

In 2003 the Case store at 170 Piccadilly was transformed into the European flagship Tumi store - where it remains today. The store is on two floors and features a complete range of Tumi products from luggage, to business cases & travel accessories.

In 2004, Case opened another airport store in Terminal 2 at London Heathrow Airport.

In October 2005, the Tumi concession opened in the luggage department in Selfridges, Oxford Street.

2007 saw a complete refit of the Tumi store in Piccadilly, London. The result was a brighter, modern-looking store, that invited our customers to come and view the different ranges on display.

In 2007 Case took over the entire Harrod's travel good department as a concession. At this time, a huge multi million refurbishment commenced over the 9500 sq foot area and the Pelham/Case Group grew the turnover enormously, creating arguably the finest, most exclusive and largest travel goods department in the world.

In 2008 the Case store at Bluewater benefited from a refit & a re-branding. The orange logos were replaced with a completely new design, featuring the purple Case logo. New window displays were installed to invite our customers in to the store.

Opened in 2005, the Tumi concession in Selfridges, Oxford Street, was renovated in 2012, bringing the entire area to a whole new level, truly showing the luxury heritage of a brand like Tumi.

Having been out of the airports for some years, where we used to operate handbag stores, we have now been awarded two luggage stores at Gatwick Airport – one in Gatwick North and one in Gatwick South. Both of these are prime airside locations and represent an important next move for our Group. We will be the only airside luggage operators in these terminals. Gatwick North opened in late 2012 and Gatwick south will join in mid 2013.

The Case store at Gatwick South Terminal opened early in 2013 followed later in the year with the opening of a new concession in Harvey Nichols Manchester.

In 2015 Case re-opens at 170 Piccadilly, replacing a Tumi store with a multi branded concept luggage and leather goods store – our first in central London since 2001.

In the late 1960's the owners sold the rights of the Revelation name to Antler for the purpose of producing and wholesaling luggage. The store continued to trade as Revelation, selling more upmarket, multi-branded luggage collections.

In 1988 Revelation Piccadilly (the Retail Trading Company) was sold to Stephen Spitz who set about refurbishing the store, and offering a more contemporary mix of products. It was felt that there was no better-end luggage business being offered in the UK and through a sister company (Pelham) started to import, distribute and retail various international brands, including TUMI, Zero Halliburton, Kipling, and Longchamp.

Having secured 2 further stores - one in Guildford and one in the City of London, the Retail business was sold in 1992, and Stephen Spitz pursued other retail interests. In mid 1997 for numerous reasons, Revelation Piccadilly was repurchased by Stephen Spitz and his Key management team.

During the next 15 years, Revelation would undergo a name change to Case, the original store at Piccadilly would become the First European flagship store for Tumi (2002), and Case would increase in size due to the addition of various stores and concessions, including the largest travel goods concession in the world at Harrods (2006), and a first foray in to Travel Goods airport retailing at Gatwick (2012).

A look at the current store listing shows where the retail business is today - dominating the top end of the travel good market through its real estate and in store departments as well as through owning the exclusive wholesale and distribution rights in the UK for Tumi, Bric's, Ted Baker luggage, Delsey, Lulu Guinness travel, Knirps and Radley luggage.

We are especially proud of our travel goods department in Harrods which is generally considered to be the best in the world, and also of our continued associations with Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, and Hoopers.

We now trade from 9 stores as well as our web presence.

The ethos of the company however remains the same and we look forward to building business in our present stores as well as expanding our presence on the web and through other channels.
