HEMA OPENS ITS FLAGSHIP STORE AT IBN BATTUTA MALL IN DUBAI
HEMA, the rapidly growing lifestyle department retailer from Amsterdam, announced the opening of its flagship store at IBN Battuta Mall store in Dubai today. The retailer opened a 5,500 square feet store, operated by Apparel Group, HEMA’s international licensing partner, which recently opened 7 other store locations across the ME region.
The store was officially inaugurated by Mr. Sans Sandee – Consul General of the Netherlands in Dubai, UAE and Mr. Nilesh Ved – Chairman, Apparel Group.
HEMA is being well received internationally. Customers are especially enthusiastic about the colorful and positive design of the products and the orderly, bright appearance of the stores. Thanks to the arrangement into ‘worlds’ and the transparent product presentation, customers can immediately see where products are located in the store. This means customers can find women’s items such as socks, underwear, jewelry and fashion in the ‘Women’ world while products for babies, with everything from romper suits to toys, are presented in the ‘Baby’ world. This division into ‘worlds’ helps to inspire customers. Also, the stores are spaciously arranged and enjoyable to shop in.
