The History of Coach
Coach had its start as a family business in Manhattan in 1941. Handcrafted leather goods were created with skills passed down from generation to generation. Coach craftsmanship soon gained a reputation for quality among discriminating consumers. Coach seeks to offer unique value through impeccable customer service, a culture of integrity, product innovation and dynamic partnerships.
Though still headquartered in Manhattan, today Coach has expanded into one of the most recognizable names in fine accessories. Coach continues to maintain meticulous standards for materials, workmanship and design. The heritage of quality leather goods and fabrics combined with signature American style has resulted in the company emerging as a leader in its field in the United States and abroad. With a line that includes handbags, small leather goods, briefcases, travel accessories, outerwear, tops, belts, scarves, jewelry and fragrance, Coach offers distinctive style in every piece. The company has joined forces with several licensing partners to also produce watches, footwear and sunwear, all bearing the Coach name.
There are now more than 400 Coach stores in the United States and Canada, with more set to open. The brand also enjoys a strong presence in high-end department stores and specialty retailers. With a long-term goal of growing the international market, Coach Japan has moved into a lucrative segment for imported handbags and accessories. Recently the company acquired businesses in Hong Kong, Macau and Mainland China. Coach products are now available in more than 900 U.S. department stores, 159 international department stores, retail stores and duty free shops in more than 20 countries, 155 department store boutiques and retail and factory stores run by Coach Japan, and 28 locations in China.
Coach products are also available on the website www.coach.com, which has expanded the market worldwide. The site showcases the full line of products, new offerings, designer favorites and web exclusives. Customers can set up a wishlist to share with friends and family. A worldwide store locator helps shoppers find the nearest retail stores, in-store boutiques and factory stores. New, unused merchandise may be returned or exchanged in full-priced Coach stores or shipped with the mail order packing invoice. Factory merchandise may be returned for store credit in full-priced stores with an original receipt or gift receipt.
Acknowledging the prevalence of Coach knock-offs, the website offers contact information to report counterfeits. Coach does not sell merchandise through individuals, street vendors, unauthorized locations, internet auctions, or at home parties and will not provide specific information on how to spot a counterfeit.
