Odd Business Name - for Saudi Arabia


Scotch & Soda has been in business since 1985 and is a clothing chain with over 160 stores worldwide. Headquartered in Amsterdam, their quality clothing can be found in major department stores and independent shops as well as online.

With alcohol strictly forbidden in this country, it's a little jarring to see a shop with this name here in Saudi Arabia.

I never heard of 'Scotch & Soda' being a name of a clothing chain.

I cannot imagine what kind of image a typical Saudi would have of this.

You certainly wouldn't expect it.

maybe "scotch" can also refer to scotch cookies?
