Department store Lane Crawford has opened a branch in the fast-growing Chinese city of Chengdu.
The 82,000 sq ft store is located in the city’s new Chengdu International Finance Square and is the same size as Lane Crawford’s Hong Kong flagship.
Set over two floors, the store stocks more than 300 luxury fashion and lifestyle brands covering women’s clothing, footwear and accessories, beauty, men’s clothing, footwear and accessories, and homeware.
It represents a RMB 300m (£30m) investment and follows the opening last October of Lane Crawford’s mainland China flagship in Shanghai.
The retailer has two other stores on the Chinese mainland, both in Beijing, and a Chinese-language transactional website. It has five stores in Hong Kong.
President Andrew Keith said the company was seeking to build “beautiful stores strategically positioned in major regional hubs in Greater China”.
He described Chengdu as a “thriving gateway” to western China and as the region’s financial centre.
