History & Closing Down
ARK opened its first store in The Corn Exchange in Leeds in 1992. The shop was originally used to sell tickets to the ARK club nights but quickly branched into streetwear. The store was an immediate success and grew quickly in size. The brand grew to have five brick and mortar stores, with many plans to expand across the UK plus an e-commerce store.
In January 2016, JD Sports PLC announced it planned to close all Ark Clothing stores. Ark Clothing announced this on their Instagram page and shortly after a closing down sale was launched. By the end of April 2016, all Ark stores were closed and their website shut down.
