Macao, June 15, 2015 – Sands Retail, Macao's leading operator of luxury shopping malls, has brought another international brand to Macao for the first time. Popular high street fashion brand H & M, Hennes & Mauritz AB (H&M) opened its first store in Macao at Shoppes at Venetian on Saturday, June 13, adding to the mall’s existing offering of over 350 international brands. The 19,000 sq. ft. store hosted an opening ceremony attended by senior representatives of Sands Retail and H&M, as well as international style icon and Las Vegas Sands Corp. business partner David Beckham.
“The first H&M in Macao will serve as a magnet for high street fashion enthusiasts from around the region,” said David Sylvester, Executive Vice President of Global Retail, Las Vegas Sands Corp. “Shoppes at Venetian’s dynamic retail mix became even richer today, and reinforces Sands Retail’s position as the operator of some of Asia’s most sought-after shopping destinations among the region’s many fashionistas. Shoppes at Venetian is an iconic shopping mall that draws over 75,000 people per day, and I’m confident that it will prove to be a great platform for H&M.”
At the opening event last Saturday, David Beckham took a tour of the store before meeting and greeting fifty lucky winners of competitions and in-store activities organised by H&M. Following the event, he met with around 100 Sands China team members and then spent time with members of Macau Special Olympics (MSO). This was followed by a tour of Shoppes at Four Seasons.
The store itself was designed to make an impact on shoppers. The retail space extends across two floors, providing 19,000 sq. ft. in total. It offers seasonal fashion and latest trends for both men and ladies. Renowned for its affordable fashion collections created by over 230 in-house designers, H&M will be offering a broad and varied range of inspiring fashion to the fashion enthusiasts of Macao. The opening of the store coincides with the launch of H&M’s Summer 2015 collection.
H&M’s first store in Macao can be found at Shop No.205, Level 3, Shoppes at Venetian, The Venetian® Macao, Estrada da Baía de N. Senhora da Esperança, s/n, Taipa, Macao SAR, P.R. China. The store opens from 10am to 11pm Sunday-Thursday and 10am to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
