DBG Plans to Open 50 Retail Stores Over Next Several Years Funded By Internal Free Cash Flow

DBG forecasts over $1.5 million per store or $75 million annually in revenues over entire store fleet

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Brands Group, Inc. ("DBG") (NASDAQ: DBGI), a curated collection of luxury lifestyle, digital-first brands, today announces that it plans to open 50 retail stores over the next several years, which will be funded by its internal free cash flow. DBG has been reviewing store locations and leases with several large-scale retail developers.

DBG believes retail stores will drive significant brand awareness, lower cost customer acquisition and higher average basket size and customer retention.  Based on the store metrics in these developments, DBG forecasts the stores to generate over $1.5 million annually per store with positive store level cash flow.  Based on the 50 store openings, DBG forecasts the fleet of stores should generate over $75 million annually in revenues and meaningful store level cash flow.

"We are excited to announce the retail store phase of our growth strategy. We believe the best performing retail brands will have three legs to their growth story: (1) wholesale, (2) e-commerce and (3) retail stores. We believe these stores will also drive revenue in our wholesale and e-commerce channels based on data from other brands who have opened retail stores," said Hil Davis, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Brands Group.
